Walis is broom stick. And walis is a part of every Filipina homes. I heard about stories of Pinay living in abroad and still uses walis instead of vacuum. And if you ask me, nothing swipes better than our walis.
Have you ever wondered what is the history of our broomstick?
I know it was made out of grass, and not just ordinary grass. This kind of grass grew most in high places like Baguio, that’s why Baguio is the haven for walis tambo.
The grass’s flower was the part that is made into walis tambo. It was dried and put together then a stick about 2 feet was tied to it.
The cost of walis tambo difers from the thickness of of the grass, the thicker, the more expensive.
