Welcome to
Ziggy’s Lucet Website






From Vikings to Victorians..........and beyond!

The Lucet has made cords for over one thousand years and is what ties doublet and hose in the middle ages, bodice ties for the Elizabethans, ornamental frogging in the 18th century, right up to the Victorians who made neck chains and watch fobs from silk.

It is the birthplace of bag ties, glasses cords, shoelaces...the list is endless.

The lucet produces a square cord from practically any material, any size, any colour and is a utilitarian cord used for absolutely everything.

The Lucet has also been known as a Lutal, Chain Fork (fig 1) or Lyre (fig 2).

Some of the Victorian Lucets were carved ivory, mother of pearl or tortoiseshell. And so to the New Lucet Design
