My first time sailing, I was stumped by the foreign language spoken onboard; that everyone seemed to know except me. "No ropes?" I scoffed naively, "Well then, what are all those things tied to the sails and wrapped around the winches?" After much clucking and rolling of eyes among the rest of the crew, my language class began with a lesson on the difference between ropes and lines.Boats, I learned, use lines, not rope. Rope, I was corrected, is relegated to land-based uses... like trimming some of our hottest new nautical pieces! So here's to lines and learning a new language, and to ropes, and the beautiful accents they create for our getaways by the sea! Part of our line of handmade Italian Rope Serving Trays, this extra large one has a lift-out acrylic insert to securly hold two bottles and twelve glasses. Teak bottom has an inlaid compass rose design. A classic Knotty Nautical Accent Pillow in deep navy, features a traditional square knot motif - using actual ... err... rope - adds a great touch of color and nautical style to a chair or sofa. Part of our handmade Italian Rope Bath Accessories line, these rope towel rings and towel bars are available with chrome or gold plated fittings. Yachtsman's Basket. Where else would you leave your favorite Prada pumps while you're onboard your superyacht? The hatch-work wooden bottom promotes air circulation and lets water or sand slide through. Handles allow the crew to hoist precious cargo onto the stern deck for a quick cruise to an outlying island. I would definitely like to tag along where these baskets go! And, one of the greatest little nautical gifts is our studly little Rope Knot Doorstop. With its loop handle, it's actually easier than standard jambs to move, and ever so much more stylish!
