This Beaded Leather War Shirt is made with white deerskin that has been colored with yellow pigment on the shoulders and green pigment marks in several spots. There is red wool at the neckline and fringe on the sleeves, hem and front and back bibs. The sides are open from the sleeve down.
Approx. measurements 36" long (the front is shorter than the back), 19" at the shoulder and 22" long sleeves.
