Apache Tasseled Bag with Vintage Navajo Concho
This Apache Eagle Bag with Genuine Vintage Navajo Conchos is a dream version of our iconic design!
The soft body of the bag is made of buttery soft Italian Leather in rich chocolate, and embellished with leather panels, cut out of our favourite vegetable tan leather that ages beautifully.
The hand tooled Eagle emblem on the front is a signature Buffalo Girl shape and one of Terry's earliest designs. The Eagle itself is one of our favourite symbols that stands for vision, strength, and rising above our limitations!
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 rich antique brown shade and adds that distinct, rustic feel.
Carefully inlaid into the panels are two Genuine Vintage Navajo Conchos with Nevada Turquoise, handpicked for the perfect match! The striking, pale blues of the stones, surrounded by the traditionally stamped german silver work perfectly with the chocolate 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 with an amazing feather clip including beautiful large feathers. The strap itself is delicately hand carved with an eagle feather design with a Navajo Concho inlay. All the fittings are solid nickel, and include our iconic custom Eagle buckle and thick nickel 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.
