    I need to find this for a gift for my girlfriend. It's a wallet/pouch with a zipper along the top (but not the sides). It only opens on the top. It's woven with designs and stuff. You can often find them in Native American museum shops or places like Albuquerque, where you find cowboy and western and American Indian stuff.

    I don't really know what they're called, and can't find them online. I could get one at a native american museum, but they're overpriced and are of poor quality.

    I'm hoping you can help me out! A million thanks in advance!

    Are they for under your clothes? In which case a money belt...

    Nah, they're wallet-sized, and can go in your pocket.

    um there are a couple of places here locally that you may want to call: bears den trading post (www.bearsdentradingpost.com) or purple ribbon in Akwesasne. Sorry I don't have the number for them but you should try calling because not all of their inventory is listed online. Good luck

    I found a few of those at Icing (Claire's offshoot), but they don't have the native american design I want.

    I know just what your talking about. I had one myself that I bought at a gas station in Cali what I was younger. It had just recently been breaking apart and I have been looking for one myself. After looking FOREVER I found a few that are like it...but not as thin as mine was...

    Here is some on Ebay, you might have to sign in

    I don't think authentic (albeit modern) wampum pouches come with zippers. :confused:
