Native American Décor and Regalia

Whether you’re decorating in the American Indian style, adding to your personal collection, or putting together a period-correct costume, we can help.

Our artist carefully replicates the past as she creates authentic-looking pieces that are true to the spirit of the American Indians. Her designs are often interpretations of museum pieces and images in reference books.

Early American bow and quiver sets can be used as functional accoutrements or decorative items.

Looking for a unique work of art? Check out our Indian-style hide paintings on buffalo robes and antelope or deer leather.

Traditional Native American war shields are also great accent pieces for your home or a period-correct costume.

Note: There’s nothing commercial about these pieces! Each one is unique, and those shown here may have already been sold. Call for details about current availability or to custom-design a piece to your specifications.

Buffalo Robe Paintings

Hair-on buffalo robes provide the artist with a canvas for these hand-painted works of art spanning approximately 35 square feet. No two are alike and current inventory varies, but the robes shown here give you a pretty good idea of what’s available. Custom orders, too, are welcome. Tell your story with a custom-designed traditional hide painting!
