Traditional decorative tassels are a popular luxury home accessory which are derived from Chinese ancient costumes. In the past men and girls used to tie tassels to their belts which would create a sense of dynamic flowing style, bringing some elegance and romance to them. Today you can hang them from your furniture hardware as a luxury embellishment to enhance the beauty or simply hang them on a picture hook or a wall as an ornament in its own right. We think they brighten up and add character as well as the good omen to any home.
History of Chinese Lucky Knots: People may have originally made them to record information and convey messages before people started to write. One hundred thousand year old tools have been discovered that were probably used to tie and untie knots, and there is a reference to knots in ancient literature. But it isn’t known when they first started to be used symbolically or woven for art.
It is known that there were used for artistic decoration and to symbolise and express thoughts and feelings in the Tang Dynasty era (618-907). The Tang Empire was a large one that covered most of regions of modern China, and the traditional art form was carried on by succeeding generations as part of their culture.
knots are supposed to ward off evil spirits, hence are a symbol of longevity and eternity. Knots act as good-luck charms given during Chinese New Year celebration. In Feng Shui ‘endless knots‘ symbolise a long life without setbacks.
