The Art of Piupiu Making
This book covers, in very comprehensive detail, the traditional way to make a traditional Māori skirt or piupiu. It describes the preparation of the flax, assembly of the prepared pieces, the dyeing of the flax once assembled into a skirt and the weaving of a plaited or geometrically-patterned waistband. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and are illustrated with line drawings and black-and-white photos.
