Micro trends: Dip-dyed tassels

Posted By Gudy / January 17, 2014 / 10 Comments

This is the first trend post this year! If you have read my October trend post on decor8 about, this one is quite in line and belongs to the textile trends coming mainly from California. When you are reading this post, I am already attending the IMM, the international furniture show in Cologne just to be up-dated with the last interior trends. Stay tuned for my trend reports to come.

So there is a certain 70´s vibe but all reloaded and with a fresh approach. There is so much going on now what you can do with your walls and dip dying is still huge. After all the macramé and woven tapestries, thick cotton tassels are on raise now. We are not talking about fabric tassels but do observe a look that belongs to a more, let’s say bohemian feeling.

They are hand-dipped and made for wall hangings when they come as a garland but you can use them wherever you feel comfortable with. I took a silk tassel from Shanghai with me I am wearing at a tote bag, they look great at key chains , and I have seen them on necklaces and door knobs. I liked them too during the festive season on branches too.

What is great about this micro trend is that tassels are an easy DIY project, so if you are feeling crafty these pieces might inspire you to make your own tassel collection.

My favorite is picture #4. Which is yours?

    Si, si, si, me molan! ¿será porque tengo un punto bohemio-setentero?
    Me gusta el macramé, las borlas, el mobiliario de aquella época, los maceteros colgantes,…
    De hecho de una de mis ventanas cuelga una gran borla desde hace unos cuantos años comprada en Lisboa! Ya ves, no puedo evitarlo, bohemia-chic-hippie?

    Mis fotos preferidas la 4 y la 7!

    Un abrazo!

    How interesting . First time I’ve seen this trend. My favourite is number 6. I like the way the dip dyed garland is combined with one that is totally dyed and one that is natural. It balances out and looks pretty.

    How great are these? Love the examples you showed. No. 4 is my favourite too but can see the attraction of each one..

    Like the idea of a keychain or on a tote bag.
    Thank you for sharing. Hope you’ve had fun in Köln!

    Me encanta la numero 4 también los colores son contratantes y el garland le da un efecto muy especial. Gracias por compartir. Un beso.

    What a great idea! I love the organic nature of the material and the way that each tassle hangs so freely. I really like this trend Gudy and I’ve never seen it before so you are first on this one. Thank You. xD
