All you see below may no longer exist because of the current civil war going on in Syria.

With a heavy chain around his ankle as if he was shackled; the craftsmen sits on the ground and puts together the first broom of the day.  His tools which include not just his hands but also his ankles are extremely primitive and simple.

Brooms are essential items in a household of any financial status therefore very popular all over the world.  Brooms are simply made, delivered by the local courier using a bicycle and available in neighborhood’s stands for rapid access and use.
