As a rule, we source all of our products in Canada. However, the highest quality manila rope is manufactured in the Philipines, so that’s where we have gone for this product. Beautiful for outdoor and decorative applications. Please be aware however, that manila rope is very affected by environmental conditions, particularly moisture. The diameter of the rope will swell when wet. The length of the rope will shrink when wet. It may fade, or blacken outside over time depending on the sun/shade exposure. The rope has a mineral oil lubricant applied to it as per Cordage Institute Standard CI1308. While lubricant is certified to “not impart an offensive odor to the finished rope”, we think it has a very mild smell that some people may be sensitive to.

If you’re looking for a size or length you don’t see listed be sure to email us at and we will do our best to source it for you. Remember, we love to see our products in use so tag us on Instagram to show us your creation.
