What is Manila Hemp Rope?
Manila hemp rope (commonly misspelled as “Manilla rope”) is a natural rope product made from the leaves of the abaca, a species of banana native to the Philippines. Although it is not actually hemp, Manila is named as such because it is sourced from fibers like hemp. Untreated Manila hemp rope is known to shrink when wet, but will not rot in saltwater, making it a popular choice for fishing nets and whaling lines in the 19th century, and outdoor and marine applications today.
Manila rope can be made from 100% natural fibers, or combined with stronger, more durable materials like polypropylene capable of withstanding wear, tear, moisture, oils, and chemicals much better than 100% Manila rope.
Twisted Manila Hemp Rope
SGT KNOTS Twisted Manila Hemp Rope is a 100% natural Manila hemp fiber rope possessing all the qualities of traditional Manila rope, without compromising strength, durability, or flexibility. In fact, when twisted, Manila hemp produces an organic mineral oil that helps bond together the strands capable of resisting fraying while enhancing weather resistance. Our Twisted Manila Hemp Rope is available in various diameters and lengths, making it easy to find the right size you need for any application.
SGT KNOTS ProManila Rope is a perfect example of a polypropylene rope that looks like 100% Manila rope but is stronger, lighter, and more affordable than pure Manila hemp rope. The polypropylene yarns used to make the ProManila rope offer the highest strength, quality, and flexibility while holding and releasing knots easily, making it perfect for use on land or at sea. Similarly, our Hollow Braided Rope looks like a true twisted Manila Rope while mimicking the durability and resistance properties of polypro manila rope!
