Babiche were used for all purposes for which Europeans would use string or rope, e.g. as webbing, in the manufacture of snowshoes, braided straps and tumplines, fishing and harpoon lines.

Babiche bags were flexible carrying bags made from netted rawhide things, used by the Indigenous peoples of the Subarctic into the 20th century, especially for carrying meat.

Etymology

Babiche is the Canadian French adaptation of an Algonquian word derived from the Míkmaq ápapíj, itself derived from ápapi, meaning “cord” or “thread”.
