Stecco Handmade Straw Whisk Broom
Description

Handmade in Italy, the Stecco Straw Whisk Broom is made by one of Italy’s last broom artisans, in the Veneto region. Use this flexible and durable hand broom for deep cleaning inside and outside your home. Italians traditionally use the Stecco Broom for cleaning their fireplaces.

Both the Veneto and Piedmont regions were famed for their production of handmade brooms, up until the 1950s. In these areas, farmers used straw (Sorghum as chicken feed. The rest of the plant, dried and cleaned, was used to make brooms.
Every year at summer’s end, the farmers divided the bundles of straw into two-inch bundles before hanging them to dry. During the long days at home in the winter, they crafted brooms in their spare time.
