Handmade Jacket

This jacket is completely handmade from scratch.....the jacket design, cutting of the leather (which was unbelievably soft), making of the fringe, the horn buttons,
the embroidery design, each bead hand sewn,
the horse tail fringe...all of it....hand made by
J. Parsons, the gentleman wearing it. Obviously, it was an ongoing work for quite a while. Now that I'm thinking of it, I believe he said he killed the deer, skinned it, tanned the hide and softened the leather himself also. Unbelievably beautiful.

Incredible, I can vision you talking him into letting you photograph him.
