Making Brooms

In a small traditional village in Chaiyi County, Taiwan Mrs Hsu is making a traditional broom from palm leaves, a bamboo stick and sugar cane leaves. She told us that when she got married at 19 and moved to this village De Shin Li she had to learn how to make these traditional brooms as did all women living in this village. We had to buy two brooms, one for the ground and the other to clean the ceiling. De Shin Li Village, Puzui Township, Chaiyi County, Taiwan
