Comanche Clothing

Comanche warriors wore a leather belt with a loin cloth and leather moccasins with bison skin soles. In the cold months, they would have worn a cape of bison skin. young men often went nacked until puberty and then adorned the warriors clothing. Comanche girls were dressed in deer skin dresses and decorated in beads and shells, much like the women of the tribe. Shells, beads and decorative items were obtained by trading with the Spanish in New Mexico and other Native groups to the East. After a raid on a warehouse in San Antonio, Comanche men and women were often seen wearing clothing made from bolts of calico taken in the raid.
