Trapline Lodges

war shirts

These shirts are created in the spirit of the plains warrior and are modeled after the many old shirts I have studied in Museums. Four brain tanned hides are hand sewn together to make this shirt. The hides are cut and sewn by hand using deer sinew for thread. The shirts are made to order and not kept in stock although the hides are always in stock. Fully beaded shirts are available. I do most of the beadwork myself but often employ native beaders to help at times. The shirts can be purchased fully decorated or sold plain for your decorating desires. Added to the shirts are beads, quillwork, weasel skins, horse hair locks, feathers, and paint if desired.
