  cheroot production

 

Myanmar

To produce a cheroot, first a filter is made from dried corn leaves that are rolled into a piece of paper (fig.).

 

Then, a dried and flattened cheroot leaf (fig.) is filled with  tobacco powder and rolled into a cylindrical shape, with the aid of a wooden stick onto which a plastic sheet is attached, in which the ingredients are placed. Simultaneously, the filter is fitted into the cheroot.

Finally, the cheroot is closed off on the top by pressing the leaf's ends into a pointed tip, whilst the other side, closed off with the filter, is then cut off to the right size using a wooden measuring object.
