Parfleche Square Container

Use this large Parfleche Container for a unique storage solution or as a display piece!  The crafter made this container from a single piece of Rawhide. He or she decorated the front and the top of the flap with geometric designs in Red, Yellow, Black, Green and Blue paint.  Then the crafter fastened the sides together with Cream colored Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing wrapped around pieces of Red Wool.
He or she used a piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing on the top flap. You can use this to tie the container top closed. A wider piece of Cream colored Deerskin is attached to the back of the Parfleche.  Use this to carry or hang the container.
This Parfleche Container measures 15" tall x 16" wide  not including the top flap.
A previous owner had this container.  It remains in excellent, usable condition!
One of a Kind!
