Haint Blue Topknots
Our signature tassels, which Hart first discovered while living in Shanghai and fashioned into earrings for herself.
The light blue paint on many porch ceilings is meant to ward off evil spirits -- a belief rooted in African American culture.

Topknot tassels are made with rayon: a luxe-feeling natural fiber that should be handled with care.
Keep them dry. Exposure to moisture and humidity can loosen the bindings and damage the silky texture.
They can get a little kinky when tossed around. But no need to fret; just straighten them out again by gently hand-brushing them under a warm hairdryer. Works like a charm!
