Yes it's true! Our brooms stand on their own! I love this photo that my friend Dena sent me of her standing broom. The reason that they do this is all because of the quality of the broomcorn and the amount we use. You can take any of our brooms and stand them up like this and they will stay!
Because of the superior quality of our broomcorn, our brooms last for a very long time. I have brooms that I made over 10 years ago that i sweep with all the time, and they still look great!
