According to the Penny Singer official website - “ The 'Penny Singer Collection' is a line of unique handmade clothing and accessories that embraces the Native American spirit and comes to market with clean lines, smart design and a flavor all its own. My philosophy is that a garment should be the best that it can be, and I invest the time to ensure that the quality of every piece meets or exceeds the standards of the last. From handbags to ribbon shirts, my designs reflect who I am free, unapologetic and just plain real.”
