Apache Tasseled Bag with High Grade Turquoise
This Apache Tasseled Bag with High Grade Turquoise is a dream version of our iconic design!
The soft body of the bag is made of superior quality suede in a delightfully warm rust shade, and embellished with leather panels, cut out of our favourite vegetable tan leather that ages beautifully.
The panels have been carefully hand tooled with the striking carved Eagle Feather design, complete with elegant stamping, that provides a beautiful frame for all the wonderful details. Each panel has been skilfully hand dyed to create that warm honey shade and add that distinct, rustic feel.
Carefully inlaid into the panels are two large High Grade Turquoise stone, handpicked for the perfect match! The striking, earthy greens of the stones, with the golden & aquamarine spots work perfectly with the rich tan shades of the hides, making this stunning bag a true masterpiece!
The design has been infused with extra love and super special finishing touches! It comes an amazing feather clip including beautiful large feathers and African Turquoise beads. The strap itself is a large hand carved Eagle Feather with a beautiful stone surrounded by elegant stamping. All the fittings are solid brass, and include an elegant buckle and thick brass rings. The long, beautifully flowy tassels round off this outstanding piece!

Turquoise is known as one of the oldest protection amulets and a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. It represents strength, protection from harm, and connection to the spirit world. A Turquoise stone gifted by a loving friend is said to protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. It's also believed to be the most efficient healer, providing solace for the spirit and well being for the body, dispelling any negative energy. In traditional thought turquoise unities the earth and sky bringing together male and female energies. The large, high grade Emperor's Turquoise on the front, also known as Dragon Skin Turquoise, comes from a mine in China, where this beautifully webbed turquoise has been used for carvings and art since the ancient times.
Known as the Stone of Evolution, African Turquoise brings encouragement for growth and development. African turquoise helps open the mind to new ideas & possibilities. It is said to awaken us to our purpose, pushing us towards positive change. As you carry it with you, you will feel its reassurance, as you meet new possibilities. It is also known to bring structure, balance, and prosperity where they are due.
