We grow all the hemp used in our ropes on small family farms where all the fieldwork and processing is done using traditional techniques. Our ropes are made by hand with time-tested techniques as they have been for centuries. In order to revive a long-standing rope making tradition that was nearly lost, we employ senior rope makers who now teach the next generations their skills. Our handmade true hemp ropes are perfect for projects requiring historical authenticity. Hemp ropes have been used for millennia for ship’s rigging, fishing nets and other nautical uses. Hemp rope stretches little, is strong when wet, and remains durable after decades of exposure to sea salt and sun. Hemp rope becomes softer with age yet retains its strength. Our ropes will last longer than your lifetime.
