In African tribal culture, a tassel is worn as an indication of chastity. Tassels have been around since biblical times and became a symbol of wealth, power and prestige. My TILU Tassel Necklace incorporates three leather tassels into its design; each made by hand using a technique that I have developed and mastered. TILU is a fine representation of edgy elegance and sensual sophistication. Matching TILU Leather Tassel Earrings (sold separately).

Deerskin is very high quality and versatile leather. It can go from being wet to dry over and over again and it still will conform back to it's original condition. It is a very soft and supple leather yet deerskin's leather fibers make it abrasion resistant and give it high shear strength. It is also extremely comfy to wear in any temperature; it becomes cooler in warm weather and warmer in cold weather. Definitely a luxurious and fun leather to design with, craft with, and wear!!
