2.1.1.5.12)- Vegetal fibres:

Vegetal fibres can also be used to manufacture vessels, in a similar fashion as leather, but with an additional consideration: it usually takes more time to accomplish the same results.

The idea is to employ fibres in one of these ways:

2.1.1.5.12.1)- Using complete leaves which can be folded adequately to form different kinds of vessels.

2.1.1.5.12.2)- Using the fibres to weave basket-like vessels. For this sort of work it is better to use long-shaped and fibrous leaves of the sort found in palm trees and other tropical plants.

2.1.1.5.12.3)- Manufacture fabrics from the fibres, and then use these to make vessels like in the case of leather (2.1.1.5.10)

2.1.1.5.12.4)- Carve logs and pig pieces of wood. This means a lot of work. You can quicken it by using a technique developed by Yaghan Indians: place hot-red pieces of burning charcoal or wood over the surface that you want to carve and leave them for a while. The take them out and carve on the burning material, which is easier, and then repeat the process until you achieve your desired results. They used to make canoes in this fashion, and it is likely that the ancient Greeks began in the same way to bulid the first large ships with a proper keel.

2.1.1.5.12.5)- Cut a section of bamboo, right under the 'ribs' or nodes that define each section. If you choose the right plant, you can actually make big mugs and jars, because an adult bamboo can be more than ten centimetres wide.
