From one long piece of natural manila rope we create our Seven Seas door mat. We pass the rope around and through the seven times. Then we hand sew the outer passes with waxed twine using a sailmaker’s palm. The stitches keep the mat neat and shipshape.
One of our favourite views from the post run, when the weather is fine. The name of this body of water is Carrick Roads, which is the name sailors gave to the Carrick Knot, maybe as a reminder of home. This rope basket is formed from a Carrick Mat Knot.
Our latest creation, a Nautical Rope Clock. It is finished off with a turks head knot to make it even more seaman-like. An all jute creation so it is Natural, Nautical and Knotted.
We love our new solid brass dog catches. They make our dog leads look even more nautical.
We sew the outer passes together, it keeps the mat neat and ‘shipshape’.
There are seven passes so we named it ‘The Seven Seas Mat’.
Thought it would be great to make a little basket to hold garlic, here is the result! Complete with hanging loop. Love having new ideas.
