The beginning

Our first sticks were all made from wood (the base rod for both the flowerstick and the handsticks), on which we wrapped strips of used inner tyre rubber as a gripping surface, and made the tassels also from the same rubber. As decoration, we glued simple wrapping material on the stick, which we secured together with nails and duct tape. These products were fragile and typically very slippery. It wasn’t easy playing with them, although there was no other option at the time, and we also learned on these, how to play with them.
