I was in Myanmar (Burma) for the last week and I visited a cloths factory. Some of the cloths are made with lotus flower string, which is made with the sap of the lotus flower by rolling it on a table. It looks like making a snake with Play Doh. So I purchased a 4 times yoyo-string-long rope (it cost me 3$). I tried to make 1 string but I didn’t have enough. It broke cause it was to thin. If any one wants to make one here’s what (I think) you have to do.
-1 lotus string 8 times longer than the length of the string you want to do
1 book around 2 cm thin
Take the rope and bend it in two. Then twist it the same way a yoyo string would be and put the little loop around your yoyo. Put the rope in the water and let it dry on a table by putting a weight on it, so it doesn’t twist on the table. Try to put a little tension on the rope. Do this 2 other times.
Please let me know if someone has a good result!
