A beautiful broom that is pleasant to use. The name 'rice straw' is slightly misleading, as the plant from which it is obtained has nothing to do with rice. ‘Rice straw’ comes from sorghum. The ‘rice straw broom’ became known in the 1960s thanks to guest workers who emigrated from Balkan countries.
Rice straw does not absorb water, making this broom ideal for sweeping leaves and straw.
