Often dipped in perfume, these tassels also serve as fragrance diffusers.
Inspired by the tradition of the tarboosh, artist Loreta Bilinskaite-Monie collaborated with Al Ghadeer UAE Crafts to create this Emirati-inspired accessory using the local technique of tassel-making. The bracelets are made of cotton and can be perfumed for use as scent diffusers.
