Celtic Cords

Traditional Handfasting Cords

  About Custom Colours

You may choose your wedding colours, or perhaps choose colours that symbolise something special to you both. I can work with you to create a cord which reflects your unique creative input to your wedding ceremony. 


Welcome to my weaving website, dedicated to the Crios, Ireland's colourful Aran Island sash which is traditionally used as a Handfasting Cord in Celtic wedding custom.

I have some ready-woven wedding cords available for sale or you may choose to have one custom woven especially for the occasion in colours that have a special meaning for you in your wedding ceremony. Or have a look at my all-new Irish crochet lace handfasting cord collection.
