How are we making..

..from a twine to the Shibari rope!

The creation of 1 set of 8 ropes takes 3 days and it is a lengthy process..


  • At first we unwind the desired length of twine from a spool (we need approximately 120 meters for 1 rope). It is necessary to check the whole twine precisely and take away all surplus parts (for example lints, excessive stems and threads).
  • Next step consists of decolorization, washing and drying. The drying is done so that the dye soaks into the material precisely during the following procedure.
  • Heat and harmless dyes that contain minimum chemicals are the essential parts of the next dying process. Vivid and long lasting colours are the result of our precise procedure.
  • Then we wash and dry the twines again so that there is no redundant dye.

  • Dry colourful twines are tightened to a special grate where they are burnt off by a gas burner and polished. It has to be done several times so that the rope doesn’t have any excessive threads.
  • Last main part of the process is a visual check of the twine. If everything is OK, next step is an application of protective cream that prevents undesirable drying out of the rope that would cause aging of the material.
  • We use our own twisting machine for the twisting and we check manually the correctness of the process (number of rotations per meter).
  • “Raw” twisted rope follows to next procedure. It is a polishing. During this process the rope is polished by a cloth under pressure. Result of this is a flatten rope that has desired shape and diameter.


We use the gas burner one last time. Then we again polish the rope and apply a small amount of the protective cream.

That’s how we create our ropes.

Important notice..

The ropes are tinted manually. This means each set of ropes is an original and unique hue. Therefore, please consider how many sets to buy. The resulting shade of the rope is influenced by many factors during the manufacturing process. It is likely that we will be unable to replicate a particular hue.

This is the main reason why we only sell sets of ropes. At a time, we can produce a maximum of 12 pieces of rope in the same colour. Therefore, we can produce a great set on demand.
