Eastern Wrap Skirt

Patterned from a 1528 Dutch Anthropologist's journal on Lenape (Delaware) people.  Similar skirts were Worn by many eastern and great lakes women.

Authentic for pre- and post-european contact outfits for eastern and great lakes areas.  An early companion to this skirt was the Eastern Woman's Pullover.

Drawings showed Lenape (Delaware) women wrapped skirts counter-clockwise (as in our drawing).  Instructions from recent Delaware elders confirmed that.  Some Iroquois women did likewise, but most women of other nations wrapped their skirts clockwise.  When ordering, you must tell us whether you want a clockwise or counter-clockwise wrap.

Short fringe about 1 1/2" (3.5cm) cut all around bottom edge of skirt.  Buckskin ties help hold skirt in place until you get your waist belt on.  Comes to just below the knees in length.

Note:  Sample buckskin colors may vary slightly depending on your browser.  But then, colors vary slightly anyway between batches of buckskin during the smoking or dyeing processes.
