Sling Braiding of the Andes


by Adele Cahlender

The author, with the help of Elayne Zorn and Anne Pollard Rowe, analyzes the 4-sided braiding techniques used for herding and ceremonial slings in the Pre-Columbian Andes, which remained a mystery to contemporary textiles scholars until the late 1970's. This book presents a classification system of braiding techniques and gives the steps for making hand-held braids with clear photos and drawings.
