This beautiful tassel features a floral-like design with Five Fortune Bats surrounding Chinese Coins imprinted with the Chinese characters Zhao Cai jin bao (招財進寶) meaning “money and treasures will be plentiful”. The reverse side has the inscription that reads wu fu lin men (五福临门) which means “may the five fortunes arrive at your door”. This auspicious hanging is further adorned with a creative knot and finished off with a matching tassel for enhancement.
In traditional China, The Bat is a popular auspicious symbol of good luck and wealth because the Chinese word for bat (fu 蝠) sounds identical to the word for good fortune (fu 福). When the bats appear in five (‘wu fu’), it expresses the collective desire for the 5 blessings of wealth, health, longevity, a virtuous life, and natural death. Besides the Dragon, Bats were popular images used in embroidery on imperial robes for high-ranking officials and the emperor. The designs were usually combined with another symbol of longevity such as cranes to connote long life and happiness.
The Five Bats Coin Tassel to Attract 5 Blessings, besides being an elegant accessory, is a handy Feng Shui amulet to attract not only financial luck but other aspects of your life as well. Hang it in your home or car, or pop it in your bag to enjoy peace of mind and prepare to welcome better health, happiness, and prosperity into your life!
