This is a pre-1850 quiver and bow case made of heavy brain tanned elk with early Cheyenne style pound bead work. Other deco includes fringe, brass beads, tin cones, horse and human hair. The base of the quiver is made of 5/16" thick neck hide the arrow points from dulling with an outer cover of rawhide to keep the points from poking through.
While not a direct copy it is based on several originals

Elegant and very nice looking. The craftsmanship is noteworthy.
I'm not gonna ask how you got the human hair.
