Our Broom Making Story:
One of my (Erika’s) ancestors is a Lenape indigenous woman who was known to travel around, sell brooms, linens, tell fortunes, and heal people with herbs. This is something that has been on repeat in the back of my mind.
I have struggled to get brooms in when the demand is up at the store and I have chosen to honor my ancestors by creating a series of brooms in my own design inspired by my multi-influenced heritage. I am offering this as a personal broom creation lesson and not something intended to train others how to be a competitor. Please respect the knowledge and the craftsperson.
