Tassel cinctures are a type of rope cincture that has a frayed or tasseled end. The purpose of a cincture is to secure the alb and stole while symbolizing the purity and chastity of the wearer. Tasseled cinctures perform the traditional function while incorporating a small amount of style to a religious outfit. Our cinctures are made by well-known brands including the R. J. Toomey Company.
Tasseled cinctures come in several colors. Popular color options include red, yellow, green and purple. The color of the cincture often coordinates with the color of the liturgical season. Sometimes threads within the cincture will be colored to indicate the status of the wearer. Regardless of color, cinctures are usually 144 inches long.
