Nautical Rope Knot Decor for Beautiful Homes

Nautical Home Decor and Accessories, handmade in the historic port of Falmouth, Cornwall.

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 are members of the International Guild of Knot Tyers (IGKT)

We also have a shop on Etsy.

Hand Crafted Flower Girl Baskets

Looking for a unique flower girl basket? We make these baskets to our own design, using traditional sailor knots and high quality ropes.

Our rope knot flower girl baskets fit with most wedding themes. One of our customers had a pirate wedding and the mini pirate flower girl looked so cute as she proudly carried her little basket. We make them in natural jute, neutral poly hemp, white and navy rope.
