With many thanks to Anthony for sending through this image.
For this project Anthony already had a seat he wanted to use and just wanted a pair of swing ropes but these had to hang from two existing eyelets in his frame. 20mm synthetic hemp was chosen as it is strong, durable, comfortable to grip and also looks like a natural rope. We used hard eye splices at the top with galvanised dee shackles and the end result looks really great.
