Curtain Holdbacks & Tassels

Holdbacks and tassels serve two functions: as a means to pull your curtains away from the window, letting in light during the day, and as another decorative element for your window treatments. Holdbacks, available in many shapes and sizes, are mounted to the wall or window frame. Tassels can be used as holdbacks or tiebacks and can also be attached to a valance, swag or hung from a curtain rod creating an entirely new look.
