Are you looking to add a bit of more authenticity to your Native American costume? We have something that might speak to your inner warrior. This Native American inspired breastplate is a fascinating accessory that will pull your look together instantly. Tribal Breastplates are usually recognizable, but not everyone knows exactly what they are, or what they’re called.
At first, these breastplates were used in battle to protect the wearer from arrows and spears. Eventually, they became used as ornamental and ceremonial dress—often times they were used to display an individual's wealth or strength. This Tribal Breastplate is rich in color and style. We can almost hear the battle cry now.
At one time, these tribal breastplates were fashioned with bones, bear claws, feathers, buffalo fur and buckskin. We’ve managed to create a similar design that is inspired by these beautiful works that are often found in museums and art galleries today. Featuring vibrant blue beadwork and corded fringe, this accessory is sure to provide a unique element to your Native American-inspired costume.
