Other Weaving

Nothing in the way of true fabrics was made by any of these tribes. The nearest to it was the rabbit skin blanket, which is of general occurrence throughout California, the Great Basin, and the Southwest. In some measure, the tribes west of the Sierra substituted blankets woven of bird skin, but it is not certain to what extent this had taken hold among the Tubatulabal, Western Mono, and foothill Yokuts. Birds were used to a very limited extent by the Paiute.

String or cord was made by all these people, milkweed fiber generally being employed.

Belts of glass beads are sometimes woven in Owens Valley, where a bow shaped loom is used.
