The cord material is hand dyed hand waxed nylon, which has a delightfully dense yet supple feel, and fades slightly over time.  It is tied using sailor knotting and Japanese kumihimo braiding.  The braid has 16 strands, and is made over a wooden loom.  The clasp is directly integrated into the clasps, and locked in place with staggered Mathew Walker knots, the ends of which are whipped with waxed polyester and left long to fray.  The original pattern for the clasp was hand carved from plastic.  From this pattern a rubber mold was made.  The claps are lost wax cast in the USA and hand finished in house.  To use the clasp simply align the gaps in each side, and they will be able to pass through each other.  This takes a little practice but soon becomes natural.
