Description: 
Mi'kmaq (Micmac) women quilled decorative designs on birchbark in response to the growing interest of non-Natives for this work in the early 18th century. European and Canadian women were so intrigued with the art form that a demand for boxes and other containers quickly emerged. Elaborate geometric designs in quillwork covering entire surfaces were common.
