Apache Tasseled Bag with Sierra Nevada Turquoise
The Apache Tasseled Bag with Turquoise is our signature design!
Made of velvet soft suede in a delightfully warm rust shade and embellished with leather panels, cut out of our favourite vegetable tan leather that ages beautifully, the design is rounded off by long, flowy tassels. The panels are carefully hand dyed to create that warm honey shade, and feature Eagle Feather carving surrounded by elegant stamping with three exquisite Sierra Nevada Turquoise stone inlays - one on the front, the second as a lovely feature of the strap, and the third on the back for that luxurious touch.
Topped off with our iconic Eagle buckle in rustic brass & a feather clip with turquoise beads to match, this is a truly stunning version of one of our most beloved designs. The eye catching finishes and careful detailing make this bag a work of art!
Features: Suede bag with leather panels and long tassels, three turquoise stones. Roomy inside with a handy, easily accessible pocket. rustic brass coloured fittings, including a three piece Western buckle. The bag comes with a matching tasseled feather clip with turquoise beads to round it off!

Sierra Nevada Turquoise
Sierra Nevada turquoise is painstakingly extracted from a small Candelaria hills mine in Nevada. It is located in the rugged hills at approximately 7500 feet in elevation and snuggled up against the Sierra Nevada mountain range that is home to Nevada’s highest peak. These beautiful stones come in a range of striking blues. We simply love working with these amazing stones! Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets that was known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. It represents strength, protection from harm, and connection to the spirit world.
