Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Ka Tahi Hei Tama Tu Tama is a valuable record and catalogue of Maori fibre techniques, including plaiting, weaving, braiding, miro, single pair twining, double pair twining, close twining, taniko, twining with rigid materials (fish trap), netting, knotless netting, tukutuku, windmill knotting and wickerwork. A comparison with similar techniques in other cultures. Includes b/w and colour photos, plus line drawings of different techniques and patterns. Many of these techniques are not recorded elsewhere, and are at risk of dying out with the old people. Mick's descriptions and illustrations are practical and easy to follow.

First published 2005, reprinted in 2007.

Includes bibliographical references (p. [176]-177).
