Another fashion appropriation sent by my sister, this one from the clothing website Spool No. 72. From perusing their website, they seem to be along the lines of Anthropologie, bohemian/vintage chic with maybe a little more “ethnic” flair thrown in there. The clutch description reads:
An exclusive for Spool No. 72. Made from a vintage Navajo rug each of our hand crafted clutches are one of a kind. The Coyote is truly a piece of art and is crafted from a native wool blend rug. Substantial in size the Coyote is adorned in breaided elk leather and a vintage horse blanket pin.
and then, the line below:
Native hand crafted in the US
So does that mean the rug is Native made? or the whole thing is made by a Native person? There isn’t any other information on the site to point one way or the other. I also happened to notice that their logo has an arrow through it :
And, when you click on the homepage of the company, the header reads “Spool No. 72: Rustic Native Inspired Women’s clothing,” but there is no further mention in the body of the page, just on the little blue bar above the browser window.
So I did some clicking, and I found their blog here. Along the right side is an section labeled “Native Inspirations” where I found even more bags:
(more after the jump plus an article I found about the boutique)
