Oh, we make thread with fiber of the bark such as anni (Pacific halibut), and Tutsi means cloth woven using attushikarape (grasshopper plane). We are strong in water and are superior in breathability and have toughness that kind is rare and unique texture for natural fiber.
Attus is the name of a fabric made using thread from the bark fibers of the Manchurian elm and other trees, and woven with a loom called an attus karape. The fabric has a unique texture. It is resistant to water, highly breathable, and exceptionally tough for a natural fiber.
How to make
We tear off Pacific halibut, the bark of Japanese linden and process and we tear in width of around 2mm and do into a thread form. We hang twist to thread which we spun by plane end and postpone thread and we receive and, after cat's cradle, sit down and weave.
Manchurian elm and Japanese linden bark is peeled off and processed, and separated into 2 mm-wide threads. The threads are tied together with weaver's knots and twisted, then stretched and twisted, then woven in a loom from a seated position.
