Date Palm Brooms

The walis tingting ("wah-lis ting-ting")- an outdoor broom - is a ubiquitous sight in the Philippines. Mornings are filled with them as ates and kuyas hose down and sweep driveways and storefronts to get ready for the day. Traditionally made of coconut leaf ribs, they're surprisingly effective considering their simple design.

Ours are slightly more decorative (a joke cause they're super decorative) but make up for their practical short-comings by quickly jazzing up any space. They're made from local date palms and are hand-bound with thread-wrapped cotton rope. Every color wrapped individually, one loop at a time.
