Natural Rope FAQ
Does it have a strong smell?
The strength of smell varies across different types of material. The smell can come from the natural material or the substance used to finish/treat the material.
- Natural hemp has a strong grassy smell which can be offputting to some people whilst other people really enjoy it.
- Manila has a faint earthy smell which is only detectable when holding it close to your nose. It is treated with a natural oil mix which can smell chemically when newly manufactured but fades within a few months to become undetectable
- Sisal has a faint grassy smell which is also only detectable when holding it close to your nose. It is treated with vegetable oil which is undetectable.
- Jute and Cotton are not treated and have a neutral smell
Can I use it for gift tags and other types of handicrafts?

Can they be used for binding meat?
Yes. All of the ropes are 100% natural with natural treatments so they are safe to use for use around food.
