Kojin Hand Broom
The Kojin Hand Broom is named after Kojin, the guardian angel of fire stoves, for it is used to clean fire stoves. Each broom is hand-made by skilled craftsmen using copper wire to secure and shape the natural hemp palm fibers. The natural hemp fibers are flexible and soft, yet durable and with proper care can hold up for up to 20 years. Use the Kojin Hand Broom for day to day cleaning such as sweeping tabletops and nooks and crannies. Also, the natural hemp fibers contain natural plant oils that are beneficial to wooden surfaces. Not only is this hand broom a practical necessity, this elegant and timeless tool is also worthy of being hung on a wall as an accent piece.
-We recommend brushing off the broom for loose fibers before initial use.
-The best way to store the Kojin Hand Broom is by hanging the broom using the string attached or to have it laying on it's side. We don't recommend having it standing on a surface as the broom fibers will bend and change shape.
