Maori would peel off the silvery underside from the leaves off and these were attached in rows with a whitau (fibre) to create a rain cape. The soft white down was also worked into the whitau to make a garment waterproof. The leaves were used as shin protectors for warmth and to guard against thorny plants. The down was also used as a wound dressing.
