Sailing lead to Knotting!
Hello, we are Janette and Paul Watson,
We create nautical home accessories from traditional sailors knots.
We named our shop 'The Lazarette' after the aft locker in our wooden ketch, Strix where we stored our ropes. A lazarette used to be the Bosun's stores on sailing ships.
We have lived and sailed on classic boats for over three decades.
We sold our first knot over 30 years ago, a Turks head in exchange for £1 and a glass of sherry!
These maritime knots make unique modern home decor.
We also have a shop on Etsy.
We are members of the International Guild of Knot Tyers (IGKT).
