Porcupine Quilled Knife Sheath

 Return to Catalog

Porcupine Quilled Knife Sheath

Custom made knife sheath done with natural and naturaly dyed porcupine quills. I harvest, clean and sort all my quills by hand. I then dye many of my quills using natural dyes, The majority of the time the colors I use in my quill work natural, yellow, green, red, blue, purple, on occasion a few other colors if I have a dyed batchs ready. I use the traditional Seneca style to sew my quills to the fabric or leather. The sheath was custom made as well with natural elk skin, and designed to be a belt sheath. The quills are edged with #12 white seed beads and the sheath is fringed with traditional tin cones and trade beads. The colors of the quills in the sheath are natural, blue and red.
