Sweeper keeper.

For 60 years, Andree Jardin has been making beautiful wood brushes in Brittany, France. Jardin’s husband, George-René Julio, was an apprentice to a brush-maker in Nantes and with his know-how, the pair opened up their factory in 1947. With the advent of plastic, traditional brush-making techniques fell by the wayside, so these brooms and dusters are some of the only high-quality options made in the old-school way—using horsehair and silk bristles, and sturdy wood handles. We love that they’ve maintained their traditional beauty while incorporating modern, whimsical design touches.

This classic push broom (exclusive to Food52!) will have you whistling while you work, thanks to cheerful colors (grey, blue, or pink) and fine horse hair bristles that pick up every last speck of dust. You can purchase the head without the handle if you already have one from another Andree Jardin design—or buy the other color heads separately and switch them up depending on your mood!

Some assembly required. See Care & Notes for details.
