    The indigenous Dusun Tribe of Sabah Borneo too has something similar to making clothing from tree bark.

    So you cut down a tree to make few shirts? Shipping in mass produced cotton or hemp fiber textiles might actually be a bit more sustainable.

    Has to chafe like a MF'er - notice how in all those pics you see of the "wild" people (taken from boats or airplanes) no one is wearing this stuff - no doubt the material was used for other purposes (shelters and such) prior to the arrival of Europeans - but it has to be impractical (other than for special occasions) to be everyday clothing.

    No affect on the environment....except falling trees and only utilizing the bark.

    So if I spill a little red wine down my front, do I send the jacket to the dry cleaners or hit it with 80 grit?

    It's their culture and they have lived that way for many years . They live in perfect harmony with nature . Those of you complaining- Europeans and North Americans, about the trees, it is your same people that are bribing governments to obtain lands for deforestation . It is your people causing the most destruction in the world . You have destroyed yours and are doing all you can to acquire indigenous lands for farming , mining and oh the irony, deforestation, so you can supply your industries . They know how to live in balance with nature and most of you really don't. Leave them be

    Rare tree? Don't get any ideas! We don't need more deforestation! Sheep wool grows back. How long before that tree is replaced to that size?
