Camel Tassels

Hi Folks...I am desperately searching high and low to find Camel Tassels....yep, you heard me right. CAMEL TASSELS.This may sound like a strange request...unless you know me and then you are not surprised or shocked at the randomness.
After watching a recent episode of "An Idiot Abroad" when he took a trip to Egypt, I became infatuated with all the colors on the camels. Especially the particular one he rode across the Jordanian dessert to get to Petra. I could care less about the 7th wonder of the world or the great pyramids in Cairo....I wanted the CAMEL TASSELS.  I want to hang them from a chandelier or sew them on pillows or use them as tie backs for my living room curtains. Or put them on my cat so she can look prettier....

I will camel hump you if you can find me any of the following....

1} an expert in the field of camel riding
2} a professional camel tassel maker
3} a dessert dweller who herds camels across the sandy plains to entertain tourists?
4} a camel

Please forward me the pertinent information so that I may swindle myself some of these lovely adornments. Thank You kindly

  3. Are you kidding me? I have been looking for the same thing! the closest I have found is at If I find any better I'll let you know. If you find some give me a shout! Good Luck! Sissy

  4. Not camel tassels, but maybe you could use them in something.

    Good luck with your search.

  5. Hi Amber
    I live in Dubai, UAE and I am pretty sure I will find some of these tassels for you at our Camel market which is literally a market selling supplies for the camel trainers and grooms.
    Camel racing is an official sport here so there is a huge business which has built up around the sport and I know I have seen the bridles which are decorated with the tassels when I visited the market last year with some friends
    I would be happy to source them for you , send you some images and then you could let me know which one you like.

    1. Hi Julie,

    Love your blog, by the way, I'm a new reader!

  8. love your blog. you should check out if you love all things india. her blog is divine!! mine's ok too.

  9. I don't have any camel tassels...but strangely enough, I do have a camel saddle. No joke. It was my great grandfather's...he lived in Afganistan building roads back in the day.

  10. I adore this!!! Camels are my favorite animals... I would love to have one of these images for art in my home! Where did you find them?

  11. Funny enough I came upon this blog looking for camel tassels too! Except, being a belly dancer, I probably have different reasons for looking! Middle Eastern dancers use these for hip scarfs and embellishments. Here's what popped up when I googled "Camel tassels hip scarf":

    There's lots more, if you are still interested. Just plug into the googles as hip scarfs and shop away!
