Dyed jute rope

Clara Premium jute

Setting a new standard in shibari rope! Each of the three strands has 6 sub-plies/strands, each of 5 yarns twisted together. The reason for this construction is to create a super flexible, smooth, loose-laid rope that is also durable and forgiving of rough handling. With this rope, you'll get the best of both worlds, long life and optimum feel and handling.

The rope has a slight odor due to the dyeing of the fiber which will disappear completely after a few days to give way to it's sweet-smelling due to eco-friendly production methods. Wet treating is entirely pointless as it is perfect right off the reel.


Original single yarn

A very Japanese style rope but with a higher than average yarn count for extra smoothness. Each of the three strands has 18 single yarns, which is 50% more than average. Thus, the rope is soft, flexible and compresses to form nice, compact knots and frictions.

As the yarn is dyed before making the rope*, the colour is consistent all the way through and there's minimal odour from the dye but no are no nasty JBO smells. It also means you don't need to wet treat this rope. It also has very little hair so burning off is optional. It can be used as is but oiling or waxing will help preserve it and create a wonderful silkiness with use.

The diameter is 6.2mm but I would expect this to break in to an exact 6mm. At around 17.5g per metre, it is a light and fast rope.

NEW! Dry treated is the new treatment option now available. We have developed for this rope a special dry treatment that does not alter the color. The colorful rope keeps its bright color and becomes incredibly soft and pleasant to the touch.

* The multi-coloured rope is dyed after manufacture, so might not be consistent to the core.
