You can make all kinds of stuff of of ti leaves. I have made hula skirts for my daughters. Can make leis (garlands) to not only wear around your neck, but haku leis to wear around your head that will work a little bit like a sun shade. You can make a cloak that can keep out wind and rain. That would make an interesting poncho shelter, since it works like wearable, portable thatching. More up my alley, you can use it to wrap food for cooking. One of my favorite uses. Today, was not so practical. I made a New Year rose for the wifee. It would have come out better had I used the larger green leaves. But since it was for a rose, I used the smaller red ti leaf. But wife liked it and that's all that mattered. I bound it using the center rib that I cut out, but after some handling, it came loose. So I resorted to the bushcraft standby... My stapler. A better close up of both the wife and the rose.
