- 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.
