A visit to the Loire castles or an exploration of French history quickly reveals the lily, a symbolic flower strongly associated with royalty, visible everywhere in France, nearby castles or along the trails, much like the scallop shell, the emblem of the Camino de Santiago.

The fleur de lys, a powerful symbol of the French monarchy, owes its name to a story where it supposedly protected Louis VII from enemies. Hiding behind majestic irises in a swamp, the king, in gratitude, made this flower his emblem, naming it “Louis’s flower”. Others recount that Clovis chose the yellow swamp iris following his victory over the Visigoths. Although its presence dates back to the Carolingian era, the iris (or fleur de lys) became a royal symbol under Louis VII. The French coat of arms then sported three golden lilies on a blue background. Even dethroned as an official emblem after the Revolution, the fleur de lys remains rooted as a symbol of French royalty.

About Snakewood:

Snakewood is one of the finest and most expensive woods of the world. It has a striking pattern reminiscent of snakeskin and is extremely hard. In the knife industry, snakewood is used to make exquisite handle scales.

So called for its characteristic snakeskin patterns. Wood is typically a reddish brown, with contrasting darker brown or black patches.

It comes from a small, relatively rare tree found in the forests of Central and South America. The bright side is that snake wood turns well and polishes beautifully. Snakewood is generally sold in small blanks and is best used in making items such as bowls, vases, knife handles, etc.
