History of Celtic Knot Work
The use of knot work design is a practice that began early in human history. Celtic knot designs developed from plait work, which was an unbroken, woven cord design used in many cultures around the world. The true unbroken and interconnected knot work that is characteristic of Celtic knot designs began around the 7th century.
The style that would eventually give rise to Celtic knot design was then spread to Ireland and England. As a whole, Celtic knot designs have become a symbol of cultural pride for those with Welsh, Irish or Scottish heritage.
