Industry brooms, garage brooms, dairy brushes and sweep brushes
From a sugar palm in south-east-asia, mostly Indonesia. The fibers come from black-brown leaf stalks, that a lot of them grow on the trunk of the sugar palm. The fibers are getting washed and combed for the further processing.
It's a brushlike, elastic fiber. The rough and hard plant fibers are oil repellent and have got a long lifespan.
Rough or moist garage floors, ware- and fabric houses, floors with oil-remainder in repair shops as well as stone floors.
