Indian BreechclothBreechcloth - Also called breechclout.  A strip of material a foot wide and about six feet long, passed between the legs and under the front and rear part of a belt.  Some were made of buckskin; others of woven fabrics; and, in the extreme South, of spanish moss.  Women also wore them to form a sort of apron in front and behind.  The breechcloth sometimes was decorated with beadwork and had fringed ends.
