This is another wonderful way to add that nautical look to your home. Beauty and function. This is 1/2 inch manila rope tied in a chunky monkey fist know around a lamp.
The monkey fist knot is an old but amazing knot. - The monkey fist also called a sailor's knot it was used to pass lines from a ship to shore or from one ship to another ship. The monkey's fist was used at the end of a line to add weight. Generally a bolt, rock or other heavy object would be placed inside the knot to add weight before tightening the knot. After completing the monkey's fist it was attached to the end of a light weight line or rope and thrown to its destination. This light rope with weighted knot on the end replaced the larger and heavier lines which often took more time to accurately pass to their destination.
Now let it light your life!
