Cleaning Devices

These cleaning devices can be found almost everywhere in China, as an ordinary interior or exterior decoration, at homes, offices and factories, on the street and at public areas, even in the mountains. They might seem a bit similar, but many of them are one-of-a-kind handmade objects. Brooms are usually made of local natural materials, such as dry branches and bamboo stems. Mops seem to be usually made of recycled textiles, with the same bamboo handle. I found these objects quite interesting, and was curious as to why they are so visible. In my country, at least, they would be hidden most of the time.
