I love the look of pompons -no translation needed- on decorative accessories or at the edge of a pillow or towel; My dear friend Evelyne had the coverlet and pillows below made by the tisserands (the weavers) in Tangier Morocco; they make the cloth for you in your colors, the width and length you need, and they weave pompons of your choice- size, colour, position- into the fabric as they go along. Stunning results.

 these pillow covers from Mia Zia for la Redoute would be so attractive in their clean simplicity in Evelyne's bedroom

I also love anything fringed, well, almost anything; I don't really like bullion fringe or fringe cords on lampshades but I do like the way fringes delightfully finish a piece; see below.

age -let's call it patina- showing on a family tablecloth I adore, messy fringe and all.

 I had two pillows made from one very large, very intricately woven, fringed silk and linen damask scarf.

au revoir.
