Want to learn a traditional art? Metis Fingerweaving is a fun & ancient skill that results in beautiful belts, bags, bands and bracelets!

Finger-weaving is a method of thread-twining that creates solid shapes of color including arrowheads, diamonds, flames and lightning bolts that can’t be created on a loom. Each piece is unique and can be used for a number of decorative purposes, and the methods range from simple to mind-bending-ly complex as you advance.

Used to create the iconic Metis “Sayncheur Flayshii” (arrow-belt, Metis sash), finger weaving is an ancient tradition that can’t be recreated with machinery. For the Metis, a finely woven sash is the epitome of luxury!
