Oklahoma Road

This dark blue cotton batik skirt captures the spirit of Oklahoma and its Native people with its colorful design and print pattern. A bright band of orange with yellow diamond insets is reminiscent of an Oklahoma sunset, further highlighted by rows of lime green, yellow, and red ribbons. The print features buffalo, arrows, oil wells, and dreamcatchers vividly displayed in vibrant colors.

Made from Teton Trade Cloth by Lenape, this stomp-style skirt was specifically designed for the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City. It features a bold vertical design and color scheme with horizontal ribbons and bold gold ricrac complimenting the colorful fabric at the bottom. The skirt has an elastic waistband and is lined with an underskirt, making a wardrobe change easy when necessary.
