WEAV­ING Nat­u­rally

Look to your back­yard for an end­less sup­ply of ma­te­ri­als for weav­ing flow­ers, bas­kets and bags.

You don't have to look far for suit­able ma­te­ri­als for weav­ing. The leaves from cab­bage trees (cordy­line), flax (phormium), irises, daylilies, dianella, wat­so­nia and red hot pok­ers can all be used. Look at other less ob­vi­ous ma­te­ri­als too, like sweet corn husks, sun­flower stalks and the fi­brous in­ner ma­te­rial of palm fronds.
