Purchased for my son

I purchased this product as a Christmas gift for my son. He wanted something made by an actual Native American. I was very pleased with the handiwork and the bio of the gentleman that made it. My son was pleased and will have it as a keepsake.

Small Medicine Bag

The leather is delightful and the beadwork is wonderful. The ONLY reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the drawstrings are very short. Every other medicine bag I have had or friends have, have longer strings to allow for it to be worn around the neck. So, I'm actually giving it 4.5 stars.
