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 to 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 handfasting cord is woven with lovely white, burgundy and silver polyester satin cords and can be adorned with a charm of your choice.  I have added a Celtic love knot in the middle of the cord.  It measures 6 feet 4 inches in length and is one of the narrower cords at 1/2 inch wide.

I have other colours available and customize your handfasting cord.  Just indicate your choice at checkout.
