This rustic version of our iconic Mustang Bag has a uniquely warm look and feel.
The body of the bag is made of supple vegetable tan leather panels and velvet soft tan suede. The panels are hand carved, from the majestic rearing Pegasus on the front of the bag to the Western floral motifs all around and along the organically shaped strap. The carved design is carefully hand dyed to achieve a two-tone effect with the lighter coloured carving set against a backdrop of warm antique brown.
The strap is lined with soft Italian leather for comfort of wearing and fastens with a three piece Western floral buckle. The tan suede tassels all around the bag flow and sway smoothly as you wear it.
On the front of the bag, enveloped by intricate Mandala stamping, is a Sierra Nevada turquoise stone in vibrant blues with chocolate brown matrix. These beautiful turquoise stones are 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. This beautifully made bag brings these powerful symbols together in an inspiring statement piece.
