Manila Rope -100% Natural Fibre:

Manila rope is a traditional, natural fibre rope made from the leaves of the Abaca plant. The Abaca is native to the Phillipines, hence the rope is called Manila. You can buy our 3 strand natural manila (manilla) rope by the metre or by the coil (220m) Our rope is grade one manila rope. It has a great many uses and is great around the garden.

The 36mm manila rope is suitable for use as a 'tug of war' rope. You would need about 35m to comply with federation standards. Our 24mm or 28mm manila rope is suitable for junior tug of war.

Because it is a natural fibre rope, manila (manilla) will shrink when wet and lengthen when dry so be sure to allow approx. 10% extra when you are measuring and ordering. The diameter of our manila rope is measured during the manufacturing process whilst the rope is under tension so the finished product often has a larger diameter than stated. Call us if you need advice on which rope to choose.
