Sling Reporduction - Carolinas Islands - South Pacific Sling

In searching through museum photo archives available online I sometimes come across some unique slings and then try to reproduce them.


These slings are from the Carolinas Island region. The description of these slings were not very informative and only stated that the slings were made of 'vegetable' or 'palm' fiber.

I have woven this reproduction sling using Pandanus. My repoduction takes a lttle from each artifact.

EDIT: I wanted to give a better view of the construction on the pouch. there are six five-strand braids that make up the pouch.
