NativeTech: Instructions for Finger Weaving Belts

Finger-weaving was a craft that was originally practiced among the First Nations people in Eastern and Central Canada. The French colonists in the St. Lawrence Valley learned the technique through their trade with the Natives, and used it to make the ceinture fléchée that is now so iconic for French-Canadian dress. Originally called l'Assomption sashes (after the town where their production began in the 1700s), they became popular as trade goods. Click the pin to see how to do this yourself.

First Nations or French-Canadian Ceinture Fléchée (detail) at Château Ramezay, Montreal - From the curators' comments: "The origin of the hand-woven sash of arrow design is much debated: is it Amerindian or European? Its raw material, wool, is definitely of European origin. However the plaiting technique, was well-known to Amerindians."

1840-1880 Huron-Wendat (First Nations) Sash at the McCord Museum, Montreal - From the curators' comments: "Aboriginal people have been finger-weaving dyed or plain plant fibres - hemp, for example - into sashes long before the arrival of Europeans. Following the introduction of European wool yarns, First Nations women embraced the new materials to create finger-woven sashes, or ceintures fléchées, which they sometimes decorated with white beads."
