|In the traditional way, before taking anything from nature you ask permission. If all feels well in your heart, you take only what you need and leave a gift in return (usually organic heirloom tobacco - a gift to the Creator). This Fringed Buckskin Pouch is made from soft buckskin in the traditional way. There are no plastics and no metal. The bag is about 3 x 4 inches, not including the fringe, and has a 16" thong - a nice size for attaching to your belt or worn around your neck. You can use the thong as a drawstring, and the bag acts as a medicine pouch to keep your sacred items close to you. If you like this, ask for the 'Smudging Guide' or view our entire Native Collection.
