Our 6mm Anatomie Ropes are from our own supplier and are made to resemble a cross between our 2 favourite Japanese ropes: Ogawa and Nawaya. For this reason they have the same look and feel of traditional Japanese Shibari jute ropes.
For the connoisseurs, they are slightly tighter in lay than Ogawa, but slightly looser than Nawaya, they break in slower than Ogawa but a lot faster than Nawaya. The ropes are however very low in JBO content (the petroleum smelling oils that are particularly evident in raw untreated ropes), and are virtually smell free, especially after treatment.
These ropes are sold around the world and we continuously receive great feedback about them. Not only do they handle beautifully for tying but breaking tests have shown they outperform most ropes in terms of strength - including 'reinforced' jute and synthetic ropes for suspension sold by other suppliers.
This is the rope we personally tie with, and it is treated exactly how we treat our own personal ropes: using camellia and jojoba oils only (which makes them vegan).
These ropes are available to purchase in single lengths or in bundles - all our rope kits are also available in coloured rope.
The 4mm ropes that we occasionally stock are from Ogawa in Japan.
