Abstract: While early studies into material culture often concentrated on items collected from archaeological investigations, current studies demonstrate an increasing interest in the artefacts, or man-made objects of existing traditional societies. For the material culture of a given society refers to the total range of objects produced by that society, including functional items such as tools, shelter and clothing as well as more decorative arts and crafts. Traditionally, many of these items have been made from plant materials. The use of plants in traditional art and technology remains an important aspect of traditional botanical knowledge (TBK). The paper discusses the current roles of plants in the manufacture of traditional goods, and outlines some of the specialist skills which are involved in the production of such items.
