Tassels are fun little details in accessories. They've actually suddenly become quite trendy and many designers / fashion brands have adapted them to their collections.
One big fan is at least Maria Montazami from Svenska Hollywoodfruar the series. She's obsessed with tassels and has over 200 pieces of them hanging in her home. Heheheh, it's quite funny actually, the series is not really very high quality but highly entertaining at least.
Oh well, however... the tassels are actually mostly used in drapery and now they've become these little finishing touches to all the trendy fashionistas accessories. Quite cute.
