Northwest Coast First Nations Textiles and Basketry

Woven Blankets, Robes, Bowls, and Hats

“The production of Northwest Coast robes has evolved through several distinct styles. The oldest known weaving style is Ravenstail, followed by the more intricate Chilkat or Naxiin style and finally by a more easily produced vestment known as the button robe, which is not woven but uses appliqué techniques…. Among the Coast Salish peoples in the southern part of British Columbia, there was also a weaving tradition in wool that was used to produce elaborately woven mats and wall panels on a large scale; later, the Salish created sweaters that became world renowned.”
