Renaissance  Rope
Hand-crafted rope and related trappings

We closed at the end of 2018.

All ropes are sold in 30 foot (approx 9 meter) lengths* and come with the ends finished with a variant of a sailmaker's whipping. The 30 foot lengths can be cut shorter on request (eg: two 15 foot ropes, a 10 foot and a 20 foot rope, three 10 foot ropes, etc).

A discount is available when purchasing four or more ropes at the same time (of any type, diameter, or color). During the initial purchase, one cut and whipping can be made for no additional charge. Additional cuts and whippings are $5 each.

How To Order

Current inventory can change quickly and while some finished ropes are stocked, it may take up to three weeks to dye yarn and spin the ropes if sufficient stock is not available. Because of this, please contact us with a description of what you would like and we will be happy to provide a timeframe for delivery. Cash, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are accepted for purchases. A secure checkout link will be sent via email for credit card transactions once the order details are finalized (checkout places a hold for the amount but it is not charged until the order ships or is delivered). Payment is required to start production on custom orders.

Conductive Rope

We are now making electrically conductive (aka Violet Wand and similar high-voltage/high-frequency electricity) ropes. Any rope we make can be made conductive. The cost is an additional $10 per 30ft length. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Jute Rope
Made from Tossa Jute - these ropes have a nice light feel to them, have very little stretch, and hold knots very well.

Hemp Rope
One of the strongest natural fibers - very durable and mold/mildew resistant.


Bamboo Rope
Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and makes a soft, almost silky, rope yet still holds knots better than Nylon or MFP ropes.

*: Lengths are typically closer to 31 feet, but will sometimes be up to 9 inches shorter or longer (total length from approximately 29.25 to 31 feet, 8.9 to 9.4 meters) - the tighter the twist the shorter the rope.
   Actual diameters are typically within 0.5mm, but being a hand process with natural fibers there will be some variation.
   60ft ropes are made outdoors, availability is dependent on the weather.
