Search YouTube for "Making Char Cloth". In essence, bits of cotton cloth are put into a sealed metal container and heated to the point that they "char", but don't actually burn all the way to ash. The process is stopped by sealing over a vent hole, depriving the inside of the can from oxygen. Once finished, the delicate charred cloth is capable of catching and holding tiny sparks just long enough to get some tinder ignited.
