Whether you’re using feathers for fishing lures or Scouting projects, leather for handbags or saddle bags, beads for contemporary jewelry or wall hangings – or, for the most authentic Native American dance regalia or fur trade rendezvous outfits – Crazy Crow Trading Post is your place on the web!
With our roots in the Native American craft supply world since 1970 . . .
. . . it’s only natural that we would have put together an extensive line of the type craft supplies used by American Indians. The bead trade in North America was originally directed toward Native Americans, and the beads used for other projects today are often direct descendants of the ones developed for trade in the 19th century.
Leather for Crafts
Buckskin and elk were (and are) used widely for Native American crafts, as well as the fur trade and frontier era outfits of those of European descent. We offer a wide variety of leather (and fur) for those specific uses, as well cowhide, latigo, buffalo and sheep (when available) as other contemporary popular leather crafts. Learn more
Native American dress is renown for its use of feathers. We supply feathers to be used with both traditional, classic regalia such as warbonnets, as well as the bright colored feathers and plumes associated with contemporary American Indian dance styles. Many of these same feathers that are a “staple” of our Native American craft supplies, as well as our selection of natural plumage, are also popular with fly fisherman and for general feather craftwork.

Crazy Crow Trading Post also features an extensive selection of jewelry findings and supplies. Many popular jewelry styles can be traced to Native American patterns and styles, particularly those of the southwestern United States. You will find everything you need to make beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, chokers and other beautiful items. Like so much of what Crazy Crow offers, these products have their origin as part of our Native American craft supplies, yet are used in contemporary jewelry crafts as well. Learn more
