Hemp Rope

Hemp ropes are wildly used in verius indestries, such as fashion and construction, and one of the earliest examples of hemp rope and other textile use can be traced back to 1500 BC Egypt.

Hemp is considered a very traditional and durable rope, having simular tensile strength as Jute, and similar low elasticity. Both can be used for twine, but hemp does not require any synthetic layering or pesticides, unlike jute. Still, hemp is a stronger natural fiber compared to jute and being resistant to mold and mildew and not being affected by UV rays.

In modern day Shibari/Kinbaku Hemp ropes are commonly woven in various diameters, usually around 5-7 mm.
The natural color is naturally beige and it is ofter dyed to different colors.
