*****History of Celtic Knot Work
The use of knot work design is a practice that began early in human history. In the third and fourth century AD knot work designs were used in floor mosaics in the Roman Empire.
Celtic knot designs developed from braiding work, which was the use of an unbroken, woven cord design that was used by many cultures around the world.
The true unbroken and interconnected knot work that is known as the Celtic knot design began around the 7th century. The style was then spread to Ireland and England.
Although this type of illumination is most often associated with the Celtic people, it was also used extensively in England as well as the rest of Europe. Italians, French, English, Irish, Scottish people all have Celtic knots as part of the ancient heritage!
As a whole, Celtic knot designs have become a symbol of cultural pride for those with Welsh, Irish or Scottish heritage.
