 On Exhibit

We made rabbit skin clothing by cutting long strips of rabbit fur cut spirally around the pelt in order to obtain the greatest length. We rolled the strips, about 2.5 centimetres (one inch) wide, on a thin rod. We then set up a frame and lashed a strip of the twisted skin along the top and sides, creating the framework for the garment.
