The Slack Dust Mop Company was started by Alexander P. Slack, who began in 1909 with a piece of copper wire that held wool rags and was used as a dry mop. He ended up with a patent for his coiled wire mop holder, which he and his four sons sold door to door. Today, his great grandson Thomas G. Slack III continues the fourth generation of the Slack Mop business in rural Vermont. Each mop head is made one at a time by hand using multi-colored wool carpet yarn, sourced from mills in South Carolina and Georgia. The hardwood handle comes from recycled poplar wood out of the northern US and is lacquered to enhance the wood's shine and luster.
