Hand Painted Beaded Chaleco Dance Shirt - Moonlit Bear (s22)
This chaleco vest is a traditional Native American style dance shirt. Beautifully hand crafted and painted with a southwestern theme design on the back. Made in the style of a poncho one size fits all by slipping over the head. This unique design is accomplished by creating both the front and back panels in a triangular shape connected at the shoulders.
The vest is handcrafted of soft suede leather with heavy fringe and also features a bear paw created with a metal concho, silver beads and hair pipe on the front as well as additional hair pipe and silver beads on the chest, representative of Native American culture. This dance vest is intended to be worn over another garment and is perfect for pow wow regalia as well as being very popular for reenactments and the modern dance scene for anyone who enjoys a rustic flair. Measure 18" wide across the shoulders and 18" long, 22" including the fringe.
