Masi Fabric

Video Overview
Dr. Sharyn Jones displays traditional Masi fabric and shows (in video and stills) how the fabric is made from the bark of the Masi tree by beating the bark with a wooden mallet. The fabric is decorated with stencils. Black ink is made from charcoal and mangrove tree sap is used to make a brown dye. Red dye is made from red clay. The decorated Masi cloth makes beautiful traditional clothing worn by the women on special occasions such as weddings, funerals, birthdays and special events such as feasts. >
