Vintage Apache Tasseled Bag with Turquoise
The original Apache Tasseled Bag!
This iconic piece is the very first Apache Tasseled Bag ever made.
The body of the bag is made of soft suede in light tan, which has aged beautifully and naturally. The hand tooled leather panels have softened over the years and their colour deepened, taking on a rich rustic tan hue. Our signature Eagle Feather carving on the front surrounds an extra large Turquoise stone in beautiful aqua hues with a black matrix. The embellishment that sits on your back features another, smaller turquoise stone.
The flowy suede tassels are extra long, adding a truly magnificent feel to this timeless piece. All fittings, including the classic Western buckle, are solid brass. Naturally, it comes with a matching feather clip to top it off!
The bag has that vintage worn in look and feel and has been very well cared for over the years, which have only added character and made this treasure even more special.

It is one of our favourites and one of the oldest protection amulets. It was known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. It represents strength, protection from harm, and connection to the spirit world. If gifted a turquoise stone by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. Turquoise is the most efficient healer, providing solace for the spirit and well being for the body. It's also a purification stone that helps dispel negative energies. In traditional thought turquoise unities the earth and sky bringing together male and female energies.
