Recognition of individual achievement and participation with a Purple Honor Cord is an integral part of every student graduation. Select a second color combo for a Double Honor Cord from our array of colorful choices. Whether you are participating in a commencement ceremony as a member of an honors society, fraternity, sorority, department recognition, or even as summa cum laude, magna cum laude, or cum laude, use a Purple Honor Cord to serve to recognize your Achievement. Each Purple Honor Cord is made from a rayon exterior, wrapped around an unseen cotton core. Each individual cord measures about 60 inches (5' feet or so), and that includes two end tassels that are roughly 4inches long each. Generally, a knot reduces the length by about 4" end to end.
