Macana Scarf How-to Trim Tassels

We are so grateful for your Aura Energy Shield purchase.

Now that you have a one of a kind piece of functional, wearable, historical art, you may choose to trim the tassels and open up the ends, so it is not in an infinity loop. We will describe how to cut the ends so that you may do that.

First, locate the large string that runs through the ends of the tassels. It’s a little bit thicker than the rest of the strings, and you may even find a knot.

Slide the tassels to expose the connecting string. With sharp scissors, cut the string and pull until it comes out.

Because the tassels have been pressed together, it takes some patience to pull them gently apart. Once you do, it becomes easier to do the whole thing.

Thank you for supporting the Indigenous Cañari Weavers through your purchase. We each are making a difference to keep this Intangible Cultural Heritage alive and thriving.
