Here we will explore the various types of rope used for Bondage and the types of knots used with the rope

As you may know, rope comes in many different forms and different materials. First we will go into the common types of rope used and when to use them.

Rope falls into 2 major families, Natural Fibers like cotton and Hemp and Synthetic fibers like Nylon. This page details the differences between various types of rope, and their suitability for bondage, as well as giving information about the length and diameter of rope most commonly used, and details on how to prepare and treat your own natural fiber rope.

Both natural fiber ropes, and synthetic ropes can be used for bondage, though each has their own properties and may be more suitable in certain situations.

Natural fiber ropes:

Natural fiber ropes are twisted, rather than braided, and are preferred by some simply due to the aesthetically pleasing marks left on the skin after being tied. Hemp, jute, and linen ropes are also very strong, yet soft enough to be used for bondage, and with enough friction to hold any knots securely.

Synthetic ropes:

Synthetic ropes like Nylon makes a awesome general-purpose bondage rope. Solid braid cording is best as it has a beautifully smooth appearance and feel. It will also hold its shape under any twisting force--unlike twisted braid which deforms slightly when braided or tied into complex woven knots.
