Domestic Science: Lower Valley Brooms from Brooklyn

May 13, 2024

Do we have an unnatural obsession with brooms at Remodelista? Possibly, but the marriage of functionality and beauty in a well-made aesthetically pleasing broom adds a note of beauty to domestic life.

Our latest discovery, Lower Valley Brooms, has us intrigued.  “My name is Kelly and I make each broom by hand in Brooklyn, NY,” says the owner.  “With a commitment to preserving the traditions of broom making, I utilize the age-old hand-wrapped methods that have been passed down through generations since the creation of the broom itself.  I thoughtfully craft every broom myself to ensure it embodies a sense of authenticity and charm.”

For a list of stockists, go to Lower Valley Brooms.

And N.B.: Kelly will be at this spring’s Field + Supply offering a selection of her brooms from May 31st to June 2nd..

Additionally, each broom comes with a hand braided handle and wooden beads, adding an extra touch of rustic elegance.”
