We do have available, on occasion, porcupine quills from Africa 14 inch and up sizes. African porcupine quills are used in jewelry making and American Indian crafts. Thick quills have become popular for hair sticks. Quillwork is perhaps the oldest form of embroidery used by Native Americans. Quills were folded, twisted, wrapped, plaited and sewn using a wide range of techniques to decorate articles of clothing, bags, knife sheaths, baskets, wooden handles and pipe stems. Quillwork has been, and continues to be used to decorate the basketry of various Native American tribes.
These are real African porcupine quills. The quills are VERY SHARP!!!
