This curtain tie is handmade by a mixture of monkey fist and Chinese button knotting. Each piece of curtain tie is made by just ONE SINGLE piece of string.

Check my second photo to see how it works. The way it's made makes it easier to tie in different ways.

I love this color - Bistre Brown? Very elegant.


It add some funs to the house, and yet it's very practical!

I love the monkey fist knot. just started learning knots and used it to finish off a paracord bracelet. Love the way it looks. Yours looks so much more clean then mine.

I love these, they look AMAZING!  I have tried so many times to make the monkey fist knot and it always looks like crap.  ALWAYS.
