The Island of Newfoundland lies deep within the Atlantic Ocean. For generations the lifeblood of our people have come from these waters. Current and abandoned fishing communities are sprinkled around the entire coastline, generations lived and generations lost on the ocean.
Get up early on a quiet summers morning, with the salt hanging thick in the air. Down at the stage, perched on logs and planks at the oceans edge, you'll find men and women reading themselves to head out in their dories for the daily catch. There is something so iconic, so beautiful and yet so sad to watch this industry fade away into distant memory. The chipped paint, the old hand tools, the rust and the memories that each community holds is tradition and our way of life.
Found on many boats of old, The Knots are reminiscent of a monkey fist or sailors knot. Known as a symbol of friendship, they were tied to the end of a throwing rope and used as a backstop, the rope could then bring dories together while out at sea.
These dainty metal knots are hung on 18" stainless steel chain.
