This Adriana mat is based on the Ocean Plait Mat Knot, which has been used by sailors for hundreds of years. They used to use old rope, but of course we use new marine hempex, which is used on traditional and classic boats.
Approximate dimensions 480 mm x 300 mm (19'' x 11'')
The outer passes are sewn together with sailmakers twine to help to keep the mat shipshape, and the ends are made neat with whipping using a traditional sailmakers palm.
Being made from this hardwearing yacht rope, this fine mat is ideal for interior or outside use. We have one that has been on deck for nearly 10 years and it still looks good.
This handmade mat would make a fine wedding gift for a couple 'Tying the knot'.
