Fiber weaving is a craft that has been practiced by the Aboriginal tribes in Australia.

Daily objects such as baskets, nets, etc. are made with plant fiber collected from the area, typically pale rush (Juncus Pallidus), white flag iris (Diplarreana Moraea) and forest flax lily (Dianella Tasmanica) according to the different seasons.  The grass will be dried over a slow fire and stripped before they are use for weaving.
