Lenape (Delaware) Buckskin Pullover Top

Patterned from an original Lenape (Delaware) woman's top, but women of many other Native American nations adapted a similar garment.

Great for cool evenings that aren't quite cold enough for a capote.  Companion piece to the Eastern Wrap Skirt.  Drawn and described in same 1528 Dutch trader's journal as the skirt. 

Developed by Lenape (Delaware) women, but copied by many others.  Hides are sewn together across the shoulders with small, authentic stitches.   Short fringe about 1 1/2" (3.5cm) cut all around outside edge.  Hangs down to a couple inches below the waist.

Original was completely open along the sides.  For modern decency laws, though, we thong ours from the inside, providing needed privacy while maintaining the look of the originals.  You can snip those little thongs free if you prefer.  Authentic for pre- and post-european contact outfits.

Note:  Sample buckskin colors may vary slightly depending on your browser.  But then, colors vary slightly anyway between batches of buckskin during the smoking or dyeing processes.
