Even though sailors are renown to be tough guys, most of them do have a romantic side. Why else would the Celtic Heart Knot exist? The decorative knot, also know as "knot of love" is the perfect maritime ​gift for Valentine's Day. For both male and female sailors...


Whether you tie it for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day: There are no limits for the uses of this knot to show your love. It looks good as bracelet, necklace or as decoration on a flower pot.
