Chances are the tassel atop the graduation cap or adorning the program or the menu came from Tassel Depot, based in Deerfield Beach.
The company, run by Roger Leavy and his wife, April, specializes in making tassels of all sizes and colors and provides them primarily to manufacturers of other products.
Greeting card companies fold cards and invitations around thin delicate tassels. Wine gift bags feature a tassel-ended rope tie. Avid readers slip a bookmark with a dangling tassel into a bestseller or to tag a favorite recipe.
