Trivia Thursday: What’s a Tuft?

I was going to title this post “What the tuft?” Say it out loud. Am I the only one who hears the similarity between this phrase and another popular one with a curse word in it? Just sayin’ that it might be a nice alternative if you’re not the swearing type.

Okay. Enough about that. On to the purpose of this post. Today, we’re learning about tufts.

A tuft can refer to several things, but in the design world, a tuft is the ornamentation that is used in the depressions of drawn-together fabric on, for example, a cushion (learn the other meanings at Dictionary.com). Let’s look at some gorgeous tufted pieces so you get the idea.
