The overall hanging length of a 12" quirt including the leather handles to the bottom of the poppers is approximately 28 inches.
The hitched area from the top knot to the bottom knot not including the tassel is approximately 12 inches in length.
Quirts are measured by the hitched area
not the overall length of the quirt.
