Practical, tangible, a silent helper, no home is complete without a broom. Made using traditional techniques, perfected over the course of centuries, these brushes come in all shapes and sizes, and each one is perfectly suited to its job. On top of all that, their form is as aesthetic as it is functional, a reminder that the old ways sometimes are the best.
It might be in black and white but the techniques used in this film are super similar to those used by Burstenhaus Redecker today.
