It measures 9" long and 2" in diameter, with 9" fringe. It is hand painted in traditional Native American geometrical designs, with green, rust, yellow, and black paint. The original Parfleche cylinder cases were used to carry and store the carefully rolled, sacred, war bonnet with it's delicate feathers and bead work. Parfleche is a very tough hide, strong enough to be used as a shield. This durable and strong container would keep the contents dry and protected.
