There’s something calming and comforting about sweeping a room clean. And a broom looks rather autumnal, too, when hung from a hook. That’s why we have been admiring, this week, brooms and brushes by Prairie Breeze Folk Arts Studio, helmed by Winnipeg, Canada-based broomsquire Amina Haswell. “I see broom-making as an art when done correctly,” Amina tells June Home Supply. And indeed: These are some of the most artful handmade brushes and brooms we’ve seen.
Take a look at just a few of the brooms we’re coveting, all available via June Home Supply.

Shown here are the Handmade Sailor Corn Broom (hanging from the peg rail at left; $54.00) and the Traditional Handmade Corn Broom (leaning at right; $92.15).
Prairie Breeze Folk Arts Studio has many more varieties of brooms and brushes (including a radiator broom, yard broom, and a charming-sounding wedding broom) on their website; you can also read more about Amina and her work here.
