This otherworldly version of our Apache Tasseled Bag is made of supple Italian leather in distressed rustic tan. The piece is embellished with hand carved and hand dyed leather panels with the rearing Pegasus on the front and western floral motifs throughout, all the way to the carefully shaped and carved strap.
The strap is lined with soft leather for comfort of wearing. It fastens with a large solid brass three piece western buckle. The tan suede tassels all around the bag flow and sway smoothly as you wear it.
The design is completed with the handpicked Sierra Nevada turquoise stone inlaid into the front panel. This turquoise is painstakingly extracted from a small mine in the rugged Candelaria hills, snuggled up against the Sierra Nevada mountain range that is home to Nevada’s highest peak.
In traditional thought, turquoise unities the earth and sky, just like the mythical Pegasus, who moves between the two realms. These two symbols together make for a powerful statement piece made to inspire.
