How to use "Rabbitskin" in context?
The traditional clothing of Australian Aborigines is known as "rabbitskin". The soft, smooth skin of rabbits is chosen for its suitability for wear as clothing because it is cool in summer and warm in winter, it dries quickly and doesn't stain, and it is resistant to the harsh Australian climate.
Rabbitskin clothing is made from the raw skins of rabbits, which are dried and then softened by being beaten. The skins are then trimmed to create a suitable garment, which is typically a robe or a coat. The robe usually has a hood and is long enough to cover the feet and lower legs.
