Island Handicraft Video: Benjamin weaves "Sorai Blo Rat"

As I've written before, the coconut tree is infinitely useful.

Locals use the leaves to weave all sorts of things. In part one of my Island Handicraft videos, Benjamin in class 4 teaches you how to weave a "sorai blo rat" (aka, mouse ear), which is a bow/star. He learned how to weave this traditionally Malekula handicraft from his mother, who is originally from that island.
