Wisherd PROUD OF HIS HANDMADE "CEINTURE FLECHEE" Even if Jacques's sash is an old one made of hard-twisted wool, dyed with natural colors and mellowed by age, it is worth money. Ceintures flechees made by habitants are prized like Persian rugs or hand-woven ponchos of South and Central America. The weaving of flechees, once almost a lost art, has been revived by the Provincial Government.
