This top was inspired by a beaded Cree top and is knit from naturally dyed silk/merino yarn. SOLD

sioux-wisdom F -=- Sioux - Wisdom Vest -=-

The winters were long for the Plains Indians and during the long nights, the women would bead their clothing to add beauty and enhance the power of the wearer. Knit from hand spun as well as commercial organic Churro, this vest design was taken from one such beaded war shirt. The colors come from natural dyes picked on or near our property in Northern New Mexico and include Mullein, Cota and Sage. SOLD
