Mystic Knotwork, located in historic downtown Mystic, Connecticut is owned and operated by Matt Beaudoin and his wife Jill.  The business (previously called 'Beaudoin's Rope Locker'), was started in 1957 by Matt's Merchant Marine grandfather Alton Beaudoin, and was handed off to him in 1996.  Prior to starting the business, Alton had practiced and honed his knot tying skills while on the McCormick line's cargo ship route between Rio to New York City.  The legacy can be extended back to Matt's great grandfather who had captained ships through the St. Laurence Seaway.  

In 2008, Matt rebranded the business into Mystic Knotwork and launched the website in 2009.  Mystic Knotwork was noticed by Martha Stewart's team in 2011 and was honored as one of 6 Heritage Artisans during the American Made Summit in 2014.  Today, the functional hand-tied nautical knots can be found all over the world.
