Which rope is the best rope for my use case?

We recommend:

6mm ropes - for ground as well as for suspension work with persons with a body weight of 70 - 80 kg (11st – 12st 8lb / 154lb - 176lb). For people who bruise easily, we recommend this rope size as well.

5.5 mm ropes - for groundwork, as well as for suspension work of persons weighing less than 70 kg (11st / 154lb).

5 mm ropes - mainly for groundwork or suspension work with very lightweight persons

4.4 mm ropes - mainly for groundwork, as well as for creative work such as woven corsets.

General rule: The thicker the rope, the more surface is available to distribute the (body) weight, and the less the rope cuts into the flesh. This is especially true for suspension work.

How should I store my ropes?

Store your ropes at room temperature and keep them away from excessive heat, light (direct sunlight) and moisture.

Twisted jute ropes have positional memory. Therefore, do not store your ropes in tightly wound bundles for long periods of time. It is better to place them loosely rolled up in an air-permeable box with a lid and additional ventilation slots. A shoebox comes in handy here.

Do not store your ropes in a plastic bag or container as the ropes may sweat when exposed to heat.

Alternatively, you can store your ropes, following our Japanese models, hanging over a rod, such as a curtain rod, which is mounted on the wall at a height of approx. 2.20m. This allows your ropes to rest in a naturally ventilated environment.

Where do I find detailed information about rope conditioning and care of my jute ropes?

Wear of the rope loop

The "loop" (or bight) of your rope is the most susceptible section of your rope to wear and tear. First signs of wear and tear will probably occur here. As soon as you notice this, shorten your rope by about 10 - 20 cm/ 4 - 8in and knot the new end. The loop now moves to the next free position. With this simple trick you'll extend the lifespan of your rope.

Ropes that are already worn should no longer be used for high-risk applications.

Discrete packaging

We ship our goods in plain brown or white cardboard boxes, very small shipments in a jiffy bag.

However, for consignments destined for countries outside the EU (e.g. Switzerland, USA, Canada, Australia etc.), we must provide a brief description of the goods on the customs declaration. Ropes and blindfolds are described are jute ropes and scarves.

My ropes got dirty, how can I clean 'em?

If the ropes are superficially soiled then the best method is to wipe the ropes down with clear, preferably odourless, alcohol.  This also disinfects them to a certain degree. Use a linen cloth and soak it with alcohol and then wipe the rope down in one and then in the other direction.

If dirt has penetrated deep into a rope, then we throw it away.

Washing with clear water: Jute is hydrophilic; this means it swells up when put into water. Thereby the ropes get thicker and shorter and need to dry under tension. 8kg per rope end gives the best (dry-)result (for example by tying a bucket filled with water etc. to each end). So washing the rope with water is possible, but the ropes’ shape and integrity may be affected. For this reason, we do not recommend it.

My rope untwists at the rope bight (centre loop) into its individual strands? What can I do?

This can happen when a rope is exposed to a great deal of weight or stress on the same area over and over again. To counteract this, pull your rope in both directions, i.e. once from right to left and from left to right, through your tightly closed hand to equate the twist across the entire length of the rope. Repeat this process until the twist of the rope at the bight is in balance again.
For the nerds: this action is also called "to dress" a rope.

If the wear and tear on the bight is already clearly visible, we recommend that you shorten your rope by around 10-15cm on one side, so that the central bight position moves to a new, intact part of the rope.
