Armbands – Plain
Plain Metal Armbands will complement your Native American regalia for both Powwows and Historical Re-enactments.
Prior to the arrival of European trade goods, Native Americans adorned their arms with tattoos, quilled cuffs and bracelets made of copper and bone. European traders brought metal, especially silver, that Native Americans used to create armbands. Metal Armbands could be simple, narrow bands or stamped and decorated. Native Americans also made Armbands of beaded leather strips or finger woven wool.
Our metalsmith makes our Plain Armbands from rugged 22ga Brass, Copper or Nickel.
These Armbands measure 1.5″ wide x 12″ long. You can adjust them with the included Deerskin Leather Lacing ties.
