This belt shows the extraordinary beauty that Ojibwa women achieved using a loom-woven quillwork technique. Woven quillwork was formed on a bow-loom by inserting flattened quills between the warp threads and folding the quills over and under the weft thread. The fineness of the porcupine quills and the tightness of the weave testify to the superior talents of this quillworker.
