Uses of Cedar Bark

Cedar bark was used in the production of rope, mats and basketry-often combined with other elements of the cedar, such as the limbs (withes ), roots, or boughs, for strength or decoration. In the past, cedar bark was the main material used in the production of clothing for the Stó:lō people. Today, the soft material is often used in the making of regalia.
