In our never ending quest to locate new trade goods for our frontier trading post, we've negotiated with the French Trader to sell two of his most prized trade items; Hawkeye's Wampum Sash and Chingachgook's Wampum Choker.

Le Francais Trader now offers these beautifully crafted LOTM style goods at our Mohicanland Main Square!

Using imported glass 'wampum' beads from the same Czechoslovakian producer of 18th century wampum, these items are hand crafted true to their era. Owned by the same family since its days as a leading manufacturer of trade beads, the Czech plant produces the glass wampum on the same machines used over 200 years ago.

Why glass instead of shell wampum? Glass is and was cheaper than shell and as such, found a large market in the Americas allowing trade of the new 'wampum' beads to flourish. As glass wampum became readily available, more Indian people utilized it for jewelry. By the close of the 18th century, many wampum adornments were no longer woven from shell but from the easily obtainable Czech glass. Even today, a shell wampum sash would cost several thousand dollars ... evidence of the value wampum still maintains centuries later. The French Trader is able to offer the superbly woven wampum choker and sash at such fair prices because of the fine glass wampum beads he has traded for.
