Handfasting is a beautiful, symbolic marriage ceremony, or ritual, and is believed to span several cultures dating back thousands of years. However, it is widely accepted as being of ancient Celtic origin and a nature-related ritual with a spiritual tradition. The phrase "tying the knot" and the action of shaking someone's hand to agree something, are probably derived from this action of binding the couples hands together, often with coloured ribbon or cord to symbolize their union of love. 

This lovely mauve and silver handfasting cord measures 7 feet in length and is 3/4 inch wide.

I have other colours of cord available and can customize your handfasting cord to suit you.  Just indicate your selection at check out or send me a message.

All of my handfasting cords are made by me in a smoke free home.  I do, however, have a lovely dog who is with me constantly.  I endeavour to make sure that there are no dog hairs present, but they seem to float through air with minds of their own.  If you find any, please forgive me.  I tried.
