Sorghum hand broom
A small hand broom of a traditional type from a small craft workshop in Thailand. Sorghum is more commonly know as rice straw or even broom corn in the west and refers to a group of grasses used for brush-making throughout much of the world. Undoubtedly similar to the grass used in our Japanese and European brooms this seems finer than either producing a slightly denser but curiously stiffer seeming brush. The hand broom measures approximately 27cm, by 12cm, by 4cm.
