Northwest Tlinget "Chilkat" Design - Scarves/Sarongs + Woven Throws

The Chilkat is a reproduction of an original weaving in the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull. A specialty of the Tlinget, whose territory was at the mouth of the Chilkat River in Alaska.

Using highly abstracted crest designs in blue, yellow, white, and black, this exceptional Chilkat blanket, was initially developed by the Tsimshian people of the same area, and bears the weaver's interpretation of the traditional "Diving Whale" pattern.

The Museum is recognized as one of the premier cultural facilities of the twentieth century, promoting a greater understanding of cultural identity and history.
