Flax cloak of the korowai type, ornamented with black tags (hukahuka) of rolled flax fiber spaced at approximately 3" intervals over the body and a heavy fringe of black hukahuka along the neck border (hanging down when the garment is worn). The two sides and bottom are bordered with rows of short rolls of black flax fiber. Small fringes of natural flax fiber warps at the top corners. Two braided ties of bright yellow and orange wool yarn. Many tags from body and fringe have come off and are missing; the side and bottom borders are much worn. Some brown stains.
