This doorstop takes its inspiration from the monkey’s fist knot, which is used as a weight on a heaving line, allowing mooring lines to be hurled between ship and dock.

It’s made using 4 meters of manila rope by the Master Ropemakers, whose process of rope-making at the heart of the historic Chatham Dockyard dates back more than 400 years.
