Historic Replica Sashes
The historic record is rich with ideas for finger woven patterns, beyond the Assomption pattern.
This pattern is called the Chenier pattern, after a
Quebec medical doctor who wore such a belt.
There are also images of Huron Chiefs wearing this pattern.
This sash imitates one in the collection of the Canadian War Museum, a sash that belonged to General Isaac Brock. Some say that the original sash was given to Brock by the First Nations Chief Tecumseh.
The ‘W’ motif sash has been associated with groups from the North American Plaines.
Here are two versions.
The one on the left took its inspiration from a sash in the collection at the Hermitage in St Petersburg.
The sash on the right was inspired by a sash in the collection of the Canadian History Museum in Ottawa
Sashes with a Modern Twist
Sashes can also be of modern design.
