The tipi is one of the most iconic examples of classic 1940's and 1950's western imagery. We've brought that image to life with our hand painted tipi brooch. Featuring a warm brown natural stain with a red zigzag stripe and two round posts. The perfect finishing touch to any vintage or western wear look!
The brooch is made of stained and sealed laser cut poplar, then hand hand carved with a high quality 1" locking pin back riveted on. The brooch measures 2" x 2 3/4". Each item is hand made of a natural material, so actual item may differ slightly from those pictured.
It would be remiss of us to not address the cultural issues around the use of tipi imagery. Our friend Janey "The Atomic Redhead" who is part of our inspiration for the creation of this brooch, has done a wonderful job addressing these concerns at her blog here.
