Fringed Leather Native American Style Dress Vintage Handmade
Fringed Leather Native American Style Dress Vintage Handmade. Really fantastic handmade fringed leather dress with loom beadwork across the chest & back. Long fringe throughout, some accented with pony beads & metal tips. This is a great example of someone’s handiwork, but the maker is unknown. At least Native American inspired, but I am unable to attribute it to any one person or tribe. This is a heavier weight hide. The stitching is machine done. Someone knew what they were doing. This piece was actually screwed to a wall as a display piece. Could certainly be worn or displayed according to your preference. Does have some marks. See notes below.
