This is a PAIR of tassels tied together at the top
Total length of each tassel is about 23 inches. White beading at the ends of the fringes and slightly larger beads on the tassel cords. Loops at the top for attaching. Colors are green and dark red. I don't see any color fading. This is a pair of tassels tied together at the top. Cut or untie to use separately. Beautiful old tassels, great for adding detail to tribal dance costuming. They also look stunning when used as a home decor accent.
Turkoman peoples use tassels in their homes, on their clothing/accessories and on their animals. Traditionally they are used to distract the evil eye and keep evil spirits from focusing on the human or animals that are wearing them. Turkoman tassels add a lot of color to your hair garden, costume or other belly dance accessories. Plus they help to keep those evil spirits at bay!
