I have been a lurker on the board for quite a while but am jumping in out of desperation. Does anyone know where I can get hold of any plaited olona for carvings I am in the process of making.
I know there was a member who made some really great stuff but hasn't posted for a while, any help would be most appreciated or a point in the right direction.
On his business website he states that "Although natural fibers such as Olona, Hau fiber and coconut sennet are the traditional ancient materials used for Polynesian style cordage, we mainly use nylon/polyester cord for its long lasting strength & durability." Eventhough he doesn't use olona, he may know where you can purchase some.
