Handy Broom & Wood Dustpan

Sold as a set.

Fiber tips are thin enough to be used on tables, fabrics, like tablecloths and on furniture upholstery. After sweeping, simply brush the tip of the broom to release dust particles. The dustpan design implemented a traditional Japanese carpentry technique for making veneer, wood was shaved thinly and laminated into a sheet. What makes it surprisingly light and effective is its three-layer construction which includes an aluminum metal sheet sandwiched between the wood. It can bend and meet perfectly along floor surfaces so that even the smallest dust particles is not missed. Both fit together neatly, looking attractive even when not in use.

Dustpan materials: teak, paulownia

Broom: w4.33'' h11.42'' d1.38''

The fine, supple fibers of the Windmill Palm enable these brooms to sweep away dirt and dust without scratching surfaces, leaving your floors spotless. In Japan, where cleanliness is a key virtue, such brooms have been part of everyday life since ancient times, their simple yet beautiful form, a result of the relentless pursuit of functionality. Made to last anywhere from ten to twenty years, depending on the amount of use, this is one broom you'll never want to part with and will find only improves with age.
