Quilled Slats Red & Yellow


Pair of Matching Red & Yellow Quilled Slats

These matching  Quilled Slats Red & Yellow are ready to add to your project!  The crafter used Red, Yellow, White, Pink and  Purple Porcupine Quills to create the striped design. He or she skillfully wrapped them around a pair of  rawhide slats that measure about 1/4 inch wide.   The slats come with squared off ends.  We are selling them as a pair.  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 prepare them for use. Then 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.

These Quilled Slats Red & Yellow measure just about 10 inches long and 0.25 inches wide.   We got these pieces from a collection.  You will find them in very good condition with no breaks or missing quills.  One of a Kind!
