Handcrafted by artisans, variation in color, shape, and size is to be expected. Manila hemp, also known as Abaca a type of buff-colored fiber obtained from Musa textilis (a relative of bananas), which is likewise called Manila hemp. Commonly used to make rope or line.

Made from the Abaca plant, Manila rope largely replaced hemp 200 years ago. Being 20% stronger, and much more economical than hemp, manila rope captures the imagination of people today as being quintessentially nautical and industrial.
