 - Oct 4, 2011
The number one thing that is learned in Boy Scout-esque clubs worldwide is the always-handy and helpful skill of knot tying. It seems like it may be more than just a survival tactic now as everything from furniture to fashion, architecture to airplanes and from accessories to invitations is getting all tied up.

The forms of knots featured in various emerging mediums is an attempt to make the boring, straight-shooting styles a little more mixed; it's always intriguing to see the most rigid of materials become malleable objects.

Jewelry is being produced from bended twisted brass, hair is being tossed into top knots and every innovation to upgrade a standard necktie is hitting the scene, so start recalling your troop leader teachings and join the booming binding movement.
