What is Turk's head knot?

A Turk's head knot is a decorative knot with a variable number of interwoven strands, forming a closed loop. The name is used to describe the general family. While generally seen made around a cylinder, the knot can also be deformed into a flat, mat-like shape. Some variants can be arranged into a roughly spherical shape, akin to a monkey's fist knot. The knot is used primarily for decoration and occasionally as anti-chafing protection.

Story - Behind The Collection

In 2017, we met a young girl while on holiday in the south of Turkey, Izmir province. Because it had a maritime background, she was making home accessories with Monkey's first knot (a type of Turk's head knot). We asked her to cooperate with us to make keychains with the monkey's fist knot. Then by supplying brass hardware, we started to produce our keyrings at the beginning of 2018. We've also added a similar knotted leather bookmark to the collection.

I’m a fan of monkey knots so couldn’t resist getting this when I bought other items.

I really had no idea what a time saver this would be.
Diving into the Tardis like depths of my handbag has taken too much of my life.
Now my hands magically grasp the monkey knot and I’m away!!!
