I called this pouch style a "Buffalo Bundle" but not because it is made of Buffalo leather. The one shown is made of Deer Suede. It is reminiscent, however of the days when the Southwestern plains Indians hunted the Sacred Buffalo Herds. Each pouch in this series will be a little different. The Deer or Pig Suede used for these pieces is available in:

~ Honey (pictured) ~ Black ~ White
~ Burnt Orange~ Light Powder Green
~ Forest Green.

Because of the color, the beads used (all rare collector's beads) will be complementary to the piece. You will need to call me or email me, when ordering this one, so we can discuss what is available, as some of the pouches have opposing color stitching as well; for example, a black one might have orange stitching, or a Green one might have tan stitching, and then some are completely monochromatic such as the one pictured. They are not only a limited edition, but also one of a kind as well.

The one pictured is made of soft Deer Suede. Because the leather used in these pouches is relatively thin, a double layer has been employed on the front as well as the back, creating a finished leather-lined interior. As with all the pouches in this series, the leather has been recycled. This pouch contains carved Eagle feathers of Buffalo horn, as well as tiny Buffalo fetishes carved out of the same Horn. In addition, there are many rare and unusual collector's beads displayed, hanging off the piece: glass, shell, pearls, bone, silver, and old faceted tube Carnelian. The braided strap is also of Deer suede. Mounted on the pouch is a natural piece of fossilized Mastodon Ivory found in the Alaskan tundra (20 to 50 million years old). The front flap has been painted with stippling with a Buffalo motif on the back (not shown)
