These thick porcupine quills imported from Africa are 6 to 7-7/8 inches long. The bundle may contain a few quills either below or above the size range you ordered. The thickness will vary within the bundle also. African Porcupine quills are used in American Indian crafts. 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.
Some of the quills have a white film on them that needs to be wiped off
These are real porcupine quills. The quills are VERY SHARP!!!
We will select quills similar to those shown in the photo.
