Manila rope (often called Manila Hemp rope) is made from the stems of a plant called Abaca, grown primarily in the Philippines and is named after the capital city, Manilla.
Consisting of long dark brown fibres, this natural hemp rope is durable and very flexible with great resistance to repeated salt water exposure, making it great for marine use as rope, lines, and fishing nets.
