You know those old coins that you see sewn onto the edges and fringes of gypsy goods? Yes, these are those fabulous coins! Old coins dating from 1950-1990 Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Turkey have been soldered with a metal loop at the top. These are absolutely perfect for sewing or stringing onto all of your boho-chic projects.
These amazing coins come from the Kuchi people, a nomadic group of Pashtun people from Afghanistan. The name Kuchi (or Kochi) literally means "migration," and these people lead a nomadic, pastoral lifestyle. That is why the coins come from all over the region. Tassels and fringe, in the form of coins and fabrics, are often associated with gypsy style and decor.
Please see last photo to see the small and medium size on the left, the large size on the right.
