Fishermen and sailors make many different knots with ropes. Among them are the "Little Hand or Sewing" (to tie the boat to the pier), the" Becket Bend" (or true fisherman's knot), the "Twisted Knot" (used to make networks), or "Bottle Knot" (replaces the pulley on the mast of the boat). Many sailors in this region - Matosinhos, Vila do Conde and Leixoes - engage in this type of craft used in fishing boats and nets, or simply as decoration.
