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. Even with its lack of resistance to rot, manila remains a popular choice for nautical use due to its strength, UV resistance and lack of stretch.
