Welcome to The Lazarette.


Nautical Rope Decor 

Traditional Maritime Knots

Handmade In The Historic Port Of Falmouth

We love to tie knots into beautiful and useful items for your home or yacht.

Sailing lead to Knotting!

We have named our shop 'The Lazarette' after the name of the locker where we keep all our spare ropes in our wooden ketch. 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!

Today we create modern home decor from traditional sailors' knot.

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

Have a look at our Etsy shop for details and prices of all our nautical and rustic decor.

Latest Creations

We thought this would be a great decoration for a country cottage.

We could imagine it as a great addition to a rustic Christmas.

It is useful as a table brush to clear away crumbs too!

Nautical Rope Knot Fruit Bowl

We created this rope basket from poly hemp. Then we sewed the turns together to keep it all shipshape! 

We love this knot and we have named this basket the 'Carrick' after our local river entrance.

Tabitha Flower Girl Basket 

This beautiful basket came from a lovely Bride-to-be's idea of creating a handle from a turks head knot bowl. She was so happy with the result, she bought two.

What Our Customers Say...

I needed 35 of the small Monkey's knot key rings for wedding gift bags. Janette and Paul from TheLazarette responded immediately on several occasions to my email questions. They rushed my special order so we would receive them in the states in time. The keychains were great looking, appreciated by our guests, and a special reminder of our son's nautical themed wedding. I WILL be ordering from The Lazarette again!  J.W. North Carolina, USA

Beautiful rope basket. Very well made.                                       C. McC. South Carolina, USA

I am so happy with this beautiful basket. Extremely well made, perdect size [my bananas are happy too!] the color of the rope is warm unlike other rope baskets that tend to be "white-ish". Great communication with seller & fast delivery. I highly recommend purchasing an item from these artists.                                    L.S. Connecticut, USA
