Chicken and duck feathers may mean nothing for most people, but for those like Nguyen Huu Tho, it is as precious as any gemstones and gold.

With his skillful hands, the valueless feathers will turn into beautiful brooms and can be sold with the price of 150.000 VND per piece.

Tho's family has had five generations of making feather brooms. His ancestors began making brooms more than a century ago.

This work has been both their source of living and family’s pride ever since./.
