Welcome to Embracing Cords, where we create contemporary designs based on the Irish Crios. We work in fine quality cotton and incorporate our love of color and beauty into pieces that compliment your wedding.
We are an Irish couple living in Portugal, our sister site is 'Embracing Union' which has been producing traditional woolen cords for over ten years. We were inspired create a new product range after been commissioned to produce the cotton handfasting cord in the image above. Thus began our love of cotton.
We have a select range of designed wedding cords which can add a touch of magic to your day and we also work with couples to produce personalized handfasting cords based on their color selection.

Custom Handfasting Cord
We have been making custom handfasting cords for some years now and love the reaction of the couple when something meaningful is expressed in their handfasting cord.
It is a creation made by them that will form a central part of their marriage ceremony, and can be very special.
