Turkoman peoples use tassels in their homes, on their clothing/accessories and on their animals.  Traditionally they are used to distract the evil eye and keep evil spirits from focusing on the human or animals that are wearing them.  Turkoman tassels add a lot of color to your hair garden, costume or other belly dance accessories.  Plus they help to keep those evil spirits at bay!
