Product Description

Life for many tribes around the world who depend on animals to subsist has often been a well of textile creativity, spurred on by a kind of joyful competitive spirit, not unlike the urge in some quarters to buy the latest model of a car! Being portable and fit for any of the many needs of their life, produced an amazing variety of bags and trappings, always expressing family, tribal, and regional pride.
