Large Womans Piupiu - M04462
94cm x 64 cm 100% Flax. Traditional Maori weaving. Very decorative artwork. Traditional Maori Flax woven skirt, these are still worn at the Maori cultural ceremonies. The black parts are created by scraping off the outer membrane of the Harakeke (flax) leaf with a mussel shell and after completely drying these strips - dye these in black chemical or natural dye. The taniko waistband in some of the photos is created almost the same way - the fibre is also 100% flax - exposed with a mussel shell and then dyed with natural or artificial dyes.
