Manila Rope

Manila Rope

Manila Ropes are usually made from Manila hemp, where as Manila hemp is a fiber which is acquired from Abaca leaves. Hemp is known as the most important source of fiber. They are used extensively in the manufacturing of fishing nets, rope, hawsers and many more, because they are durable and resistant to salt water damage.

In addition to this, these ropes are very useful in fabricating process of bags, carpets as well as furniture and clothing products. Since many years, these ropes are being used as whale line in fishing business.

These kinds of ropes get shrink when they become wet, which is sometime considered to be an advantage, but there is also a disadvantage of these ropes. It becomes very difficult to unite knots of these ropes when they are wet.
