    Process of Sikki Craft

    First of all, let it cool and dry the flower heads. Toys, dolls, and baskets (Dolci) are woven. Sometimes objects are drawn. Shiki boxes, called pouti, are given by parents to their daughters when they get married. Chests are used to store new doors, trinkets, and jewelry.

The main tool, the "takua," is a 6-inch needle-shaped iron object with a round head used to hold the needle.
