Did You Know?

The ceinture fléchée, or sash, was an important part of 18th and 19th century French-Canadian costume, as well as trade good favoured by Native peoples.  It served as a belt to hold tools and helped to retain body heat.

La ceinture fléchée faisait partie du costume des Canadiens français du 18e et 19e siècles.  Elle était importante comme objet de traite avec les peuples autochtones.  Elle servait à retenir les outils en plus de garder la chaleur du corps.
