    This highly illustrated book gives step-by-step instructions on how to make your own piupiu, the traditional Maori flax skirt.

Colour photographs record every phase of the craft process; from selecting the right flax frond to cutting and preparing it; to dyeing the flax through to binding and strengthening the waistb∧ pattern making; storage of the finished garment and more.
