Grey Owl Crafts Sashes in Order of the Arrow Posted April 6, 2011 I have one of these sashes. They are heavy and require you to put some sort of backing on them to help them stay in place. I found that sewing the beaded sash onto an older cloth sash worked quite well. As far as them being "Offical" I have never taken any flack for mine. I still keep a cloth sash for work days and only wear the beaded sash for ceremonies or cracker barrels.
