Stone age hunter-gatherers' 'paradise' discovered in Israel
Archaeologists find hundreds of knapped flint hand-axes used by early humans over half a million years ago at Jaljulia, north-east of Tel Aviv


snip
The most striking find was evidence of a well-developed lithic industry – referring to elaborately worked stone tools – including hundreds of flint hand-axes typical of the ancient Acheulian culture that existed in the Lower Paleolithic era from about 1.5 million to 200,000 years ago.

No doubt, industrial jute fibre string followed fairly soon, because axe and spear heads are more useful when secured to a handle.

Very unlikely ...that's a local skill set not requiring special materials.

You know that animal sinew, or leather bonds are more likely to have been used by early humans, as they came straight from the animals they hunted, and did not require para agricultural (knowing the plant, and how to harvest and process it) knowledge.
