Nautical Rope Knot Decor for Beautiful Homes

Baby Flower Girl Basket, Rustic

Back In Action (Partly)

After breaking my arm a few weeks ago, I have had an enforced holiday. Now I am gently returning to making some knots. Creating the smaller items that don't need hard pulling through or holding with my left arm for too long. So the shop is now open with a few keyrings, bathroom accessories,  baskets and dog leads. Just not quite up to making door mats, they take so many metres of rope!

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

Making beautiful and useful modern creations using authentic sailor knots.

Hello, we are Janette and Paul Watson,

We create nautical home accessories from traditional maritime knots.

The name 'The Lazarette' comes from 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.

Having lived and sailed on classic boats for over three decades, we have tied a few knots!

We sold our first knot over 30 years ago, a Turks head in exchange for £1 and a glass of sherry.

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

Flower Girl Baskets

Looking for a unique flower girl basket?

We make these baskets to our own design, using traditional sailorknots 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.

Rope Knot Baskets

We make unique rope baskets that can be used for fruit, vegetables, your seashell collection or even your mobile phone. We have a basket for every occasion!

Our nesting sets of baskets take up less space when not in use, they look like a rose when stacked together.

At the moment we have two types of wall hanging baskets, the smaller version is perfect for keeping your fresh garlic and chillies handy, The slightly larger one is just the right size for a couple of mobile phones or the average paperback.

We make a range of different sized rope knot baskets, from tiny catchall bowls for rings and keys to a large fruit bowl, (pictured).

We really like thinking of new designs, using the traditional knots from the bygone days of tall ships.
