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.
