Celebrate your union with the ancient tradition of "tying -the-knot" with Handfasting Ribbons carefully handcrafted in the tartan of your choice.

Throughout the British Isles, the pagan ritual of Handfasting played a symbolic part of marriage ceremonies, remaining legal in Scotland until 1939. Gretna Green became a mecca for eloping couples who fled there to perform their own Handfastings before witnesses. It was also used in Scotland for the engagement period of a year and a day before a wedding was proved.

Why not consider using two or more Handfasting Ribbons, handmade in your own meaningful or favourite tartans ?

Dimensions: approx 8cm x 145m
