Porcupine Quills

Native Americans have used Porcupine Quills to embellish many items starting before contact with Europeans. They have created unique and beautiful designs on clothing, baskets, bags and other items. Quillwork is a truly traditional Native American craft.

To use Quills, the crafter softens them in water to make them pliable. Then the crafter flattens or wraps the quills to create a design.

We offer Porcupine Quills in both natural white and a selection of colors.

Choose from:

  • Natural
  • Black
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Light Blue
  • Dark Blue
  • Purple
  • Assorted

You can buy quills in 1/4 oz or 1 oz packages. Quill lengths vary between 1″- 3″.  We do not sort them, so expect to cull out quills that are too short.  (Remember, quills are hollow and lightweight. 1/4 oz packages have over 200 quills, 1 oz packages contain over 1000 quills).
