Tie Backs & Tassels
Marrakech is tassel heaven! They were originally worn to decorate the hoods of djellabas (traditional outer garments) the Moroccan equivalent of an overcoat. Tassels are still an essential decoration, loved by local ladies, and are known as “swishes”.
At Atelier M, we still use swishes to decorate caftans and coats, but we also love to make them into stunning napkin rings; cute key rings; and as decoration for more exotic objets d’art.
Moroccan tie-backs are particularly spectacular! We can offer standard tie backs in many colours, just contact us directly with your request.
At Atelier M we offer a range of our own bespoke styles to choose from. Atelier M’s tie-backs are made from a heavy quality rayon yarn that gives a luxurious look, feel and drape. We can make these in standard plain colours to order.
However, if you require something special, we can manufacture tie-backs (minimum of two pairs) to match your fabric. These can be made in one or a mixture of colours. Tie backs can be made to any length and embrace. Simply contact us directly with your details for a price.
We can also supply matching key tassels, cords and braids (minimum 10 metres) to order for a complete look. A fabric or colour swatch will be required for an exact match. Please note that any commissioned items cannot be returned unless faulty.
