Red & Blue Quilled Slat

This Quilled Slat Red & Blue is ready to add to your project!  The crafter used Red, Blue and  Natural Porcupine Quills to create the designs. He or she skillfully wrapped them around a wood slat that measures a little over 1/4 inch wide.  The slat comes with one squared end and one pointed end.  The squared end has a hole in it that you can use to attach it to your project.  One of a Kind!

Native Americans use Quillwork to adorn a wide range of items, including moccasins, leggings, and dresses, as well as personal accessories like bags, pouches, and jewelry. Historically, quillwork was primarily practiced by women, who gathered the quills and prepared them for use. They clean, soften and flatten the quills to attach them to the item they want to decorate. They dye the quills using natural materials such as berries or roots.

This Quilled Slat Red & Blue measures just about 10.25 inches long and about  0.25 inches wide.  The quilled section measures about 9 inches long.  We got this piece from a collection.  You will find it in very good condition with no breaks or missing quills.  One of a Kind!
