You Don't Need Harakeke - NZ Flax 

Of course, we'd love you to be able to weave with harakeke but don't fret if you can't find any. You can still learn to weave kono with alternative materials: plastic baling strips, ribbon or firm paper as in the kono you see pictured here. Be inventive - you'll be surprised what you can weave with!
