Native American War Shirts & Vests

native-american-war-shirtsNative American war shirts used by southwest Indian tribes are a very interesting part of American history. Worn by braves as badges of honor, they were created using elements gathered during a battle to serve as a memorial of the battle and the bravery of the warrior. Indian war shirts were often made of buckskin and then decorated extensively with accents such as beading, feathers, animal tails or even pieces of cloth and bullet cartridges, anything collected at the site.

Sometime simple but often intricately designed, Native American war shirts can be stunning and make fabulous rustic wall decor. They are so beautiful that they look great in any room for special southwest style or rustic western home decor, cabin or Native American collection.
