Tassels are used in many cultures to decorate garments, pillows, table coverings, curtains and more. Afghanistan is no exception. Every ethnic group from Pashtuns, to Baluchis, to Uzbeks, to Turkomans, to Hazarasuse tassels in their hair, their garments, their tents, and homes as articles of adornment. Pashtun Tassels generally tend to be made of silk, or seed beads; while the Turkoman and Uzbek tassels are made of silk, metal, or a combination thereof.
