Does anyone proof read or know how to spell?

I was  checking our the new line called Tara.  I was browsing through just out of curiosity. I did a double take on the description of items ( a boat, seashell, fish shaped)  as Knotical.  What?!!!!  Its Nautical. This quality?  Just plain sloppy and lazy. Not th image I believe a company should portray.  Does non one check before it is posted

the items have a rope and bit of a twist knot.   this is a take on the word.   common in advertising.

@TheMemphisVette.  You are correct. That is exactly what it is.

@natureluvrI agree with @TheMemphisVette -  it's a clever play on words.  

 

It might just have sailed right over my head -  (pun intended)

I noticed that too but I also realized that it was done on purpose.  As others mentioned, it's a twist on words..

Pretty obvious this is a play on words given the pattern has a knot design. I really like it and now have the serving boat in my wish list. Tara at Home Knotical 3-qt Serving Boat - H317993

 

 

But I can't agree more with your last sentence..."non one" seems to check before posting.
