Our household staff can make more than a hundred pieces of soft broom in a day. Brooms are very useful generally in sweeping. Today, we went to a place where this product is locally grown. Tiger grass with scientific name “Thysanolaena maxima” has increasing demand in the broom industry. Farmers from Benguet uplands contribute to the propagation of this kind of grass. I think their tiger grass is the best kind. it grows abundantly in the highland areas of Ifugao and Mt. Province, although in some parts of the country like La Union, Baguio, Bataan, Nueva Vizcaya, Albay, Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, etc.
I’ll post tomorrow the picture of our staff who can make more than a hundred pieces of soft broom in a day 🙂 I cannot find the picture taken two years ago so I will have a new and fresh shot tomorrow.
