Mid-Late 19th C. American Indian Assumption Sash
These sashes were woven by the Lakes and Northeastern tribes. This earlier one is finger-woven or plaited without a loom from hand-spun vegetal-dyed wool, including two shades of indigo. They were originally used as a major clothing item to add color to the costume and later traded with the voyagers, who used the sash to wrap around their mid-section when carrying heavy loads of cargo on their portages west through the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Great Lakes region. This is a very fine example of one of these sashes which is expertly woven and the color palette is beautifully harmonized. Dimensions: 76" long (woven area), 24" fringe at both ends making total length 124". Width is 6". Technique: double-plaited. Condition is excellent with no holes and only two small yarns worn along one edge.
