Palm fiber made from the "Chambira" palm (Astrocaryum chambira) is among the most versatile plant products used by indigenous Amazon people. Here, the fibers have been woven into a bag which can be used to carry fruit, fish, roots, tools, clothing and more. The color comes from natural dyes. (To see the fiber being processed, see palm fiber.)
