Handcrafted leashes made with love and a purpose...

Welcome to Hope Rope Co, we offer handcrafted pet leashes with hammered brass hardware. We donate 20% of our profits to rescue agencies and no-kill shelters.

About us and our love for rescues:
We believe that every dog deserves a chance - shelter pets have made our house a home and our lives full of joy and adventure. Willow was adopted at 4 months after being found living in the side of a highway with her mom and sisters. She made the journey from South Carolina to Rhode Island where we met and adopted her on Chris' birthday. Mack was adopted at 10 months after having a really hard time finding a forever home. He had several behavioral issues paired with anxiety which made him a bit of a handful. We found him at a local rescue by way of North Carolina and don't have too much info about his past. He has settled into our pack nicely and he is the yin to Willow's yang. We wouldn't have things any other way.

About our charitable donations:
We want to give back to programs that give rescue dogs like ours a chance to find and know love. That's why we donate a percentage of our profits to rescue agencies and no-kill shelters. We also support these organizations by donating merchandise for sale or raffle at fundraising events. Check our FAQ for more information.

About our cotton ropes:
Our ropes are handmade using 1/2", 3/8", and 1/4" 100% cotton rope made from USA-grown cotton. Our ropes are hand dyed in small batches to ensure quality. We use solid brass fittings and solid bronze swivel snaps. Between the custom blended colors, unique patterns and hardware details, each leash is its own unique work of art.

Cotton rope care and cleaning:
Our cotton ropes are best used in DRY conditions, but if they get a little wet, it isn't a big deal. The natural cotton fibers will stretch slightly with normal use. Clean by brushing off loose dirt and spot cleaning with cool water and mild detergent if needed, hang to dry thoroughly.

About our Newport collection ropes:
These leads are made with authentic marine dock line which has a slight sheen and silky soft feel. They are colorfast, can be washed in hot or cold water with mild detergent if needed, and are great for all rugged outdoor adventures. They are fitted with the same solid brass hardware as our cotton leashes.

Intended product use:
Our ropes are intended to be used as dog leashes and could also be used as horse leads (blunt ends are available upon request). Most of our ropes come in four sizes: Standard, Standard Lite, Mini, and Ultralight. See our size chart on the top of the page for details and recommended weights. If your pet is on the cusp of a weight range and they pull a TON, size up! See individual product listings for size availability.

Safe use:
If your leash is worn, frayed, torn, ripped, damaged, or appears unsafe, DO NOT use it! We will happily recycle your old leash and offer a discount off of the purchase of a new one. Contact us for more details.

Wear & Tear and Safe Use

All of our products are made with quality USA-manufactured materials that have been tested out on our own pups as well as those of family and friends. Our products are made to last, but are not indestructible. Rope fibers will show signs of premature wear if allowed to drag. Brass and bronze hardware can be maintained by rinsing with fresh water after being used at the ocean, clip springs can be periodically lubricated with household WD40 if needed. We are not responsible for the wear your pup puts on their leash.

As always, do not use your leash if it appears broken, frayed, or otherwise unsafe. Please contact us if you would like to recycle it and receive a discount off of a new leash.

Never use your leash as a tie-out.
