Made from the Abaca plant, Manila rope largely replaced hemp 200 years ago. Being 20% stronger, and much more economical than hemp, manila rope captures the imagination of people today as being quintessentially nautical and industrial. Widely used for both practical purposes and aesthetic, manila is a popular choice for everything from landscaping to industrial tool restoration. 

While its absorbent properties cause it to rot faster around water than synthetic fibers, this same quality makes it a desired rope for applications where a good grip is important, as it absorbs perspiration in much the same was as chalk for rock climbers. Manila remains a popular choice for nautical use due to its strength, UV resistance and lack of stretch. 

**600ft options for 1/4" and 1/2" diameters come coiled in a box. By the Foot and 100 feet options come coiled in a plastic bag. 600 feet and longer options come on a spool except for 1/4" & 1/2" diameters (original spool lengths may be larger than the length option chosen leaving the spool not completely full). Images shown might not be completely accurate with spool fulfillment.

We looked for options to accent the fireplace of our lake house. When my wife suggested the rope, we found the perfect solution.
