Braided handfasting ropes
Our range of braided cords are available in lots of contemporary shades with the option of adding pendants at either end for added significance and personalization.
This is a contemporary cotton version of the Irish "crios," the traditional handfasting cord of Celtic wedding custom. We work with you closely to match your wedding colors or find colors and pattern that represent your values or the symbolism you want to bring into the ceremony. We have a large range of colors in stock and love to co-create something really meaningful for you both for your ceremony.
We designed this Celtic heart knot into a really special handfasting cord with a super tactile softness and drape. It suits having the bride and groom face each other for the handfasting with the wonderful symbolism of the love between them facing the gathered family and friends.
DIY infinity knot cords
aka Unity Cords
Three slim cords, with the option of up to six different pendants comprise the DIY infinity knot cord set. The infinity knot is made by the celebrant at the ceremony. Colors often represent both partners and the binding force that holds them together. Pendants add an extra dimension of depth.
This Celtic golden hearts knot is a really special handfasting cord with a lovely knotwork detail on each side complimenting the center knot of two intertwining hearts. The metallic golden thread adds a touch of sparkle while staying soft and supple. There is the option also of golden colored pendants.
Honoring of the four elements is an important aspect of many ancient traditions and it is a very popular inclusion in wedding ceremonies. It involves blessing with the four fundamental elements that underlie all of creation: air, fire, water and earth, symbolized by the colors yellow, red, blue and green. Click the image for more info.
This cord is simple and elegant. The trinity represented is the marrying couple along with the third element that binds them together - God, Love, Universal Spirit, or their shared Soul destiny. The three cords plaited together represents the bringing together of these three elements to produce a cord stronger than each one strand is individually.
Custom Handbinding Cords
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.
Our Pendant Range
Here is a small sample of our large selection of pendants which are an optional addition to your cord. More can be seen at our Etsy shop. It is possible to add pendants to any of our designs. They are a nice personalization and add an extra touch of symbolism to your cord. They can be added to custom pieces or any of our ready designed cords.
