PIPE BAGS & TOBBACO POUCHES

Native American Pipe Bags, Toccaco Bags | Pouches - Cheyenne, Sioux, Arapaho, Crow, etc.,

Native Americans made an incredible variety of  pouches for every conceivable purpose.  Beaded and or quilled pipe bags were some of the finest items made.  Their tobacco was sometimes carried at the bottom of the bag.  The pipe bowl was separated when it was carried and a thong drawstring tie was attached to the top of all pipe bags to secure the contents of the bag.
