velvet, ribbon and glass beads
During the late 19th century, the Iroquois developed a textured, three-dimensional variation of the lazy stitch, using translucent beads for the decoration of objects sold to tourists at the Niagara Falls. The combination of the withe man's materials with native techniques produced unique Victorian curios.
