Knotted tassels have a long tradition as embellishments on Italian embroidery.
The ingenious use of simple and complex knots to fashion beautiful decorative elements dates back to the 17th Century.
By Maria Rita Faleri, using onion and Turk’s head knots, these charming grape tassels are worked with linen thread and would be the perfect adornment for the key to the wine cupboard.
