This is a very long vintage Quebec ceinture fléchée - a traditional French Canadian woven wool belt that was originally worn by French Canadian voyageurs and Métis people. I acquired this from a lady who told me that it was her grandfather’s - his name is still affixed to it and reads “W.J Mackay”. The label font is deco looking, so I would think that this dates to the 1920s or 30s. It does not have the tight weave of a 19th century example, but is still tighter and more complex than modern examples. What differentiates this vintage Quebec ceinture fléchée is the length - 140” including the hand twisted fringe. The belt itself measures 90” in length with each fringe measuring 25” long. The belt has a width of 7”. This vintage Quebec ceinture fléchée is in very good condition - a pull or two, but really well preserved.
This is a nice old example of a vintage Quebec ceinture fléchée!
