Traditional Bustles

These are traditional dance bustles! I make them in child, teen, and adult sizes. Only men wear these unless it's a special occasion. All standard adult bustles average around 35+ inches wide X 51 inches long! The base that goes on your back is a plywood board that is covered in felt. The beads that separate the dowels are glass tile beads. The dowels are wrapped in colored crafting tape (Which is more common at Powwows, now.) The bustle represents a warrior that’s why traditionally only men use wore them. It also represents a battle. The center represents the battlefield. The dowels with horse hair or feathers: one represents your tribe, and one for your enemy. The feathers are a symbol of arrows that fly through the air when a battle occurs. I custom make bustles, but if you see one you like just fill out the blanks, and specify colors.

Black, White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Turquoise(Not always offered), Green, and Purple!
