Great Style with Fringe Benefits. Tanzania’s nomadic Barabaig tribe is known for its beautiful jewelry and beaded-fringe cloaks. The fringed leather for this Barabaig Beaded Blue Eternity Scarf is hand-cut by Barabaig artisans over a dried gourd, before symbolic beads are added. Blue, gold and black beads represent god, death and rebirth. Two traditional brass spiral beads finish this scarf. Wear this amazing lariat-style scarf around your neck, over your shoulder or tied like a belt. Leather, glass beads, recycled brass and cording. Each will vary slightly. 63"l.
