Large Black Caravan SwagWoman Shops World
A large tiered arrangement of black Pom Poms makes a perfectly dramatic statement that you can hang from almost anything. These bold swags are perfect for hanging in a corner that needs some jazzing up, hanging over a bed post, on a front door, on a hook on the wall, or even for party decor. And they are perfect conversation pieces; read on to find out why!
Traditionally, these are used to decorate trucks and other modes of transportation in India. During Divali, the annual celebration of light and color, which is a lot like our New Year’s celebration, truck drivers deck out their trucks to honor of the vehicles that bring them their livelihood. It is part of Indian culture to decorate and adorn those things which are important to you. These tiered tassels are part of the annual “swagging" ceremony. Most of the trucks that you see on the road in India are covered in these or similar tassels and decorations. They hang from mirrors, doors, bumpers, etc, and blow in the wind while the colorfully painted trucks rumble down the road.
These measure approximately 36" from top to bottom.
Note: these, like all goods that I sell, are handmade. They quite literally come from a truck stand on the side of the dusty road in India. They are not a product of fine craftsmanship, but they make a beautifully bold bohemian statement. Please keep in mind they may have some loose or uneven threads; this does not at all detract from their fabulousness.
