Vintage Black-Backed Jackal Pouch




August 2013
See my current artwork on Etsy

Jackal hides are a rather unusual find, and this vintage one used to be an old rug; the leather’s still strong, though, so I decided to make it into something gorgeous! I folded the hide over so that the head forms the bottom of the foldover flap. The strap and decorative braids are made from vintage secondhand yarn, decorated with lovely glass crow beads.
