Jute Rope (twisted)
Cords and Ropes made of Jute
In this category you may order twisted ropes made of Jute.
Jute has been one of the most important natural fibres in the world for centuries. The production of this ropes is still in elaborated handwork. The ropes made of Jute offer high tensile strength, good hygroscopicity (taking humidity and bind water), story any static electricity and have bactericidal properties.
Jute Ropes are 100% natural product and are made from biodegradable natural fibres. In the late 70th the slogan "Jute instead of plastic" became a sign of commitment to environmentally friendly behaviour.

Areas of application
The environmental friendliness and other properties of the jute ropes make this rope to an indispensable auxiliary material, when it comes to organic agriculture and horticulture.
Thanks to its skin-friendly and pleasant surface, this rope is often used in areas where breaking strength is not the most important factor.
Horticulture, landscaping, modelling, design, window dressing, photoshoots, labelling, packaging, insulation material, shibari, bondage, household, transportations, fishing, architecture, maritime, decoration, gardening cord, zoo and pet enclosures
So-called Jute Batching Oil (short: JBO) is used in the production process of jute ropes. The use of oil is necessary to make the jute fibres supple and to ensure better cohesion of the fibres. In many cases a mineral oil is used for this purpose.
For the Kanirope jute rope J-TWIST, however, only vegetable oils are used for batching the jute. This has many advantages: On the one hand it is more sustainable and better for the environment. On the other hand, the use of vegetable JBO also has advantages for the jute rope: oil residues still in the rope are of purely vegetable origin. The jute rope is therefore much more odourless and does not smell of mineral oil or "petrochemicals". Possible harmful effects of mineral oil residues are excluded.
