PATTERNS IN FLAX B&W 11 mins. 35mm 1,015 ft. The six-foot leaves of New Zealand's native flax plant were invaluable to the Maori people, who plaited mats and baskets from strips of the almost unbreakable leaves, and made cloth and rope from the tough fibres. Now modern factories use some of the beautiful old Maori designs to make modern floor coverings. Often the modern weaving machines are operated by descendants of the Maoris who used these fibres to make the fine material for their garments.
