Leather hand sewn wall packet made by First Nations from Babine area (from Angus McLean residence in Smithers - more info from Pat McCammon).

The latter have brown beaded outline with a matching single line of brown beads along the top of the pocket on the bottom pocket. The top pocket is finished with a line of straight stitching. The whole packet is lined with white cotton with three lines of beads across the top of the inside flap. The second line of beads appears to have a 3cm trim of ribbon underneath the beasding. A brown crossgrain ribbon rossette is attached to both of the top inside corners. The whole packet has been outline in what appears to be a couching stitch 1.5cm from the edge.
