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.

Note:  The books that we carry were originally published in 1980. They have some bends and scrapes on the covers that have occurred over the years as they have been moved between different booksellers. That is why the price has been reduced from the original $19.95 to $12.00.
