Annette Graener Hand Woven Bison fabric Purse
SPECIAL SALE - ONE ONLY on sale!
Hand loomed bison/silk/alpaca fabric with American tanned bison leather trims and handles.
Never-before-on-sale. A lifetime piece of handwoven artistry.
For close to forty years, Annette, Austrian by birth, Colorado resident by adoption - created weavings of many kinds with American bison fiber. For years, she did it all - harvest the fiber, wash, spin, dye and weave what have become heirloom pieces. Annette was the featured artist-in-residence at the now closed Denver Buffalo Company gallery.
In 2007, several of her weavings were accepted by the Museum of the Native American at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., for permanent collection. That, my friends, is the quality and depth of this artist's works. Annette used predominantly whole hair bison fiber, but blended with other natural animal fibers - alpaca, Navajo Churro and other local wools, and silk.
The leatherwork - also American bison - was done by her long time collaborator, Frank Mackray of Colorado Leathers. Oh, the colors! That's just pure Annette.
We lost our dear friend which, unfortunately, means we will not be able to obtain any more. You'll only regret it if you wait too long... Call for availability. Made in Denver, Colorado.
