Handfasting cords are available ‘off the peg’ and for individual commission.
Beautifully and mindfully woven or braided, the cords are made to your colour specification and length (multiples of 3 feet). The cords are woven or braided in a variety of natural materials and can be tailored to vegetarian and vegan ethics if required.
Your cords are an integral part of the handfasting ceremony but can also be incorporated in to a traditional wedding ceremony on consultation with the person leading your day. (Our celebrant can offer advice on this and / or perform your ceremony). Care is taken to create them with consideration of their dual solemn and joyful purpose and will be supplied in a fabric bag to act as a keepsake of your commitment to each other.
Your cords can be personalised using a variety of methods such as by adding threads or beads sent from each of your guests before your special day or embroidered names, words or dates.
Handwoven cords start from £48, braided cords from £22 for 6 feet and increases on length and level of embellishment.
Please contact Gaia for further details.
