Parandhi Pom Poms

Parandhi Pom Poms

Along the Indian highway, one can’t miss the lavishly decorated trucks barreling by. Drivers spend weeks away from family and these behemoth carriers become their home away from home. Often referred to with pride as a “second wife,” the trucks are festooned with paint, jewelry and enough accessories to make any girl green, and this penchant for personalization has become a bona fide art form.

Originally the black tasseled pompoms swing from mirrors and bumpers as the auspicious color wards off the evil eye. We like to use them as playful decor adornments such as curtain tiebacks, draped over a lamp base, or looped around a bag or luggage. Frivolity at its finest!
