Manila Rope 3 Strand Twisted
Manila Rope is an inexpensive, natural fiber rope that is treated with a preservative before leaving the Philippines. Stronger & more economical than true hemp, manila is made with abacá leaves, a close variant to today’s modern banana plant.
This flexible & decorative rope has that perfect nautical look when new or rustic charming when weathered. Holds knots well with a great hand grip texture makes manila a popular choice for handrail or landscape projects.
Although this rope has UV resistant fibers, it may shrink when used outdoors by 15%. Also, during the manufacturing process there is a mineral oil applied for added durability. When new, you may smell a slight oil odor that will fade over time.
We also carry a synthetic polypropylene alternative called UnManila that won’t rot or shrink when wet.
A classic around the lake house or beach getaway!
Sold by the foot, or in bulk center pull coils.
