I have a bone hook that came from Hawaii a number of years ago. I want to replace the cord before it breaks and can't find a source for the tan spiral woven cord that my hook shares with the cords shown on most Hawaiian carvings. I believe my hook was carved by Milton Matia. I can't find a web link to him either. I am a high school teacher in NY and have two senior students that have asked me to mentor them in their senior project which they want to do on bone carving. Could you help me out in locating a source where I can purchase a spool of cord and of the single stranded lashing material?

Thank you in advance and happy holidays.

Frank
