The rope is made from hemp cordage. Approximately 25 feet long. An 8-strand box braid. Natural dyed porcupine quills are used for the wrapping. Hand rolled brass cones and natural dyed deer hair tassels.

This is a prisoner collar. The design is adapted from an 18th century moosehair embroidery of one in the Milwaukee Public Museum. Center band twined from hemp cordage. Ropes are 8 strand box braid ending with natural dyed quill wrapping and hand rolled brasscones with natural dyed deer hair tassels. T.C.
