Embellish your favorite bag and more with a ceramic tassel! The ceramic bead is formed and painted by hand by a cooperative at Lake Atitlán, and the design featured is the brocade weaving pattern of a star. The tassels are made with naturally-dyed cotton, also prepared at Lake Atitlán but in a different town.
We put the pieces together in Antigua, and we think the collaborative result is something really special.
Choose from the colors currently available.
Ceramic bead is 1 inch in diameter. The loop totals 12 inches (6 inches one way) and as seen in the picture with our Quetzal Tote, it is long enough to loop around straps of bags.
