Beaded Child’s Robe Reproduction

Beaded Child's Robe Reproduction

Beaded Child’s Robe Reproduction

Exquisite! This One of a Kind Beaded Child’s Robe will become a treasured heirloom! Master Craftsman Andy Bullock created this Reproduction Child’s Robe on White Braintanned Deerskin Leather.  He used a whole Deerhide and kept its original shape.

Andy used Lazy Stitch to apply a variety of bead colors including Pony Trader Blue, Cheyenne Pink, Cobalt Blue, French Transparent Dark Pink, Greasy Yellow, Transparent Green and White Seed Beads. He added Deer Dew Claw Drops threaded with Braintanned Deerskin Leather. To these he added Blue Crow Beads and broken antique Feather Beads.

This Robe is unsmoked Braintanned Leather. You will have Rawhide if it becomes wet.  The back shows discoloration because the leather is not smoked. But you will not see threads from the beadwork because Andy does such fabulous work.

This robe measures 42″ at the widest point and 44″ at the longest point. The beaded design measures 24″ x 19″.

Dream Catchers

Navajo Natives create our Classic Dream Catchers.  They make them with natural feathers, imitation sinew, glass beads, metal beads and tin cones. Each Dream Catcher comes with a card explaining the Dream Catcher legend.  The larger Dream Catchers include the artist’s name and tribal affiliation.

The Woodlands Indians say: Hang a Dream Catcher by the window or at the head of your bed. The bad dreams get caught in the web. The good dreams work their way through the hole in the center, rest on the feather like a dew drop, and evaporate to the Great Spirit in the morning sun. The prayer beads on the Dream Catcher trap all the bad dreams that are left on the web. The prayer beads then burn them up.

These Dream Catchers come in three sizes:

  • 2″

Dream Catchers make nice housewarming gifts or special mementos  for children. You may also like our Dreamcatcher Kit!  It comes with everything you need to make a personalized Dreamcatcher!
