Native American Arapaho Beaded Hand Tanned Purse
From eBay – A wonderful display of contemporary bead work on hand tanned white hide, made into a modern hand bag complete with hidden zipper at the top to keep your items secure. Very well hand crafted and sturdy with rawhide in between the hand tanned hide and lining, this bag will last for years and keep it’s shape. There is remarkable bead work on front and back and the top. It is lined with old fashion calico, blue with tiny stars. All the edges around the strap and purse are edge beaded. Leather dangels adorn the front and back. Shell conchos attach the strap to both sides of the bag.There are 6″ bands of beading across the front and back with seed beads beaded into traditional Native American geometrical designs. The purse measures approx. 11″ across and 8″ from top to bottom. A treasure to own or display as a beautiful example of meticulous bead and leather work. Made by Marcus Dewy of the Arapaho Tribe.
