What better way to add dimension and style to your rope projects? Dip dyeing is fun and oh so vibrant. The product I use in my Macrame Plant Hanger projects is Dylon brand Hand Fabric dye. I have used the Bahama Blue and Intense Violet so far. The application is very easy (just follow package directions), although a little time consuming it is certainly worth the effort. I had tremendous success dip dyeing Ropeshop's 100% 3 strand cotton rope, achieving beautiful results. The effect was both subtle and vibrant, a wonderful combination. Have fun with your rope and try a little dip [...]

Hi Rope Shop I'm a small business owner (Classic Vintage Decor). I operate out of my home in Fort McMurray, Ab. making macrame plant hangers and wall hangings that I sell at the local markets. I usually find my materials in thrift stores but I wanted to make items with a more refined look I began looking online for cotton cord/rope. Finding your online store that sells 100% Canadian made cotton rope was amazing. Thanks for the great quality material so I can make great Home Decor items.
My first macramé wall hanging made using 100% Cotton 3 Strand Rope 3/16" from Ropeshop. It was easy to work with and I'm glad with results! The quality and texture are really good! Thanks! Marina
Hi Ropeshop! Thanks for getting the Manila rope to us as quick as you did. We were able to finish our backyard project in time for our Canada Day Tiki bar/pool party. The rope was used in a traditional fence design but also trimmed out the Tiki Bar door and window frames. The rope gave us that nautical look even though we are located in the desert region of Canada’s Okanagan Valley. Thanks again for a great product and prompt service. Jim & Yvonne
This is the first piece I completed using 1.98mm 100% 3 Strand Cotton Rope. It was so satisfying to work with a smaller gauge rope! I can't wait to explore more possibilities and I'm thrilled to have found a Canadian supplier for high quality natural rope for fibre art. - Alison
This pair of water bottle holders (will also hold cans of your favorite beverage) are made with 550 paracord. The cord has been "needle hitched" around an empty water bottle. I've added a handle (Portuguese sennit) and a split ring so that the holder can be carried by either a strap or carabiner or you can use the handle as a belt loop. By: John Staley
Now that summer is here I wanted to make myself something to hold wildflowers, so today I decided to try making a macrame mason jar holder using Rope Shop’s 3mm twisted cotton rope. I love the way the macrame mason jar holder turned out and I will be making more of these! Marjut
I have searched high and low for an affordable supply of large quantities of rope for macrame projects! So excited to have found Ropeshop and even better that they are Canadian! The rope is perfect! Excellent quality and shipped super fast right to my mailbox! One happy gal right here! In this photo I used the 3mm cotton rope! - Nikki
This week we received a new project submission from one of our customers. Robin created custom dog collars and leashes with all proceeds supporting PADS (Pacific Assistance Dog Society). PADS does amazing work in the community by breeding, raising and training certified assistance dogs. If you're interested in learning more or contributing in your own way, check out their website. These leashes and collars were created with our 550 Commercial Paracord, in several colours. The buckle on the collar is our Contoured Side Release Buckle. We're happy to see our rope being used in projects like this that really help others! Thanks for [...]
