These tassels/ornaments are made by hand in Peru with remnants of new and vintage frazada rugs. Frazadas are gorgeous textiles handmade by artisans in the highlands of Cusco. They are typically woven, over the course of 1 month, on a backstrap loom. They are used as rugs and often used to make pillow covers. Like us, our artisan partners believe in a "no waste" approach to their design, so they use frazada remnants to make these adorable hearts tassels.
Frazada Hearts make the perfect Christmas ornament or Valentine's Day gift, but also can be used year-round to decorate handbags, baskets, doorknobs and more... or just to tell someone how much you love them.

As with all handmade and vintage items, there are sometimes imperfections or variations in pattern and size, from item to item. This is what makes them special.
