Canadian Bearpaw snowshoes with leather bindings. The weaving and frame are still intact - so much so that this set could be still used today! Thick raw hide lacing and hand hewn white ash frames - with red pom-poms (used for tribal marking and scent masking while trapping). This set has original leather bindings.
