Why Knot

new product at purl soho

On August 7, 1974, Philippe Petit gave new meaning to the term "high wire" when he stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between the rooves of New York's twin towers and performed for over an hour. During Petit's life-long tightroping career, knots have always been indispensable components, protecting his life in the sky. After years of fascination and hands-on research, Philippe Petit presents Why Knot?, a guide to his favorite 60 knots. Filled with hundreds of Petit's own illustrations and knot-tying wisdom, this very special book even comes with a piece of practice rope!
