The Tassel Collection is part of our new SS20 collection. We developed the collection with our producers in Peru and are super excited to be able to share with you the development process behind the collection.
During a workshop session last year, one of our producers Elizabeth had an idea that we could develop an idea with tassels. Elizabeth knew how to make tassels and after some research thought they could work well as jewellery. We thought this was a great theme for a new collection and started on development!
We started off by making some initial tassel test pieces, trying out different types of threads to see what effects they had. Once we decided on the thread we wanted to use we headed out on a trip to the market with our main materials buyer Patty to try and source the perfect colour options.
Once we had some tassel samples we started exploring different metal shapes and forms that we could combine them with. We experimented with scale and alternative ways of attaching the different components together.
Elizabeth is usually part of our crochet team but also has some basic training in metal work which she was really keen to develop. With help from the metal team, Elizabeth worked on making samples and practising her metal skills, finishing all the final samples herself. We couldn't be happier with the final collection!
The final collection has a vibrant tone, perfect for brightening up any summer outfit. You can make a statement with the three tassel studs or keep it simple with just the one. The tassel pendant, modelled by Elizabeth above, is a great summer essential.
