2) Jute tassels added to Coastal Style spaces bolster nautical themes

Passementarie is the art which includes tassel-making. Originally used at the ends of ropes to prevent fraying, by the 16th century, tassels, pom-poms, galoons, rosettes, and gimps were a full-fledged artistic practice recognized by the organization of the Guild of Passementiers in France. But, you don’t even have to be crafty to get this look!

3) Tassel-making is easy

Just wrap wrap, tie tie, snip snip and you’re ready to go
