Twill weave is one of the ways that Salish weavers create pattern in ceremonial blankets. This technique can be used to create herringbone or diamond patterns in the wool. Red and black fabric strips have also been woven into this blanket. These design elements combine to distinguish the person for whom this blanket was made.
