Jute Rope

Jute Rope

Our Jute Rope and Cord has a robust PolyPropylene core so although the outer is natural, the synthetic core inside makes it stronger. 

It is soft to handle, and often used in gardens, for decking and interior design, in gymnasiums, for tug-of-war rope and more.

We currently stock Jute Rope from 4mm-36mm.

We also sell 100% Jute Sash Cords in 10m hanks

    We currently stock jute rope in a broad spectrum of diameters, ranging from 4mm-36mm, with something to suit all applications. These can be bought:

    All of our jute ropes are manufactured by trusted European partners and made to the highest possible standard. Boasting either a 3-strand or 4-strand construction, they are soft and comfortable to handle – yet also benefit from a strong and tough polypropylene core. Each rope is bound with PVC tape as standard. However, if required, a range of alternative rope end finishes are also available.


    What is jute rope?

    Essentially, jute rope is a type of rope that is made from a natural, vegetable fibre – called jute.

    Jute is harvested from the bark of a jute plant, such as Corchorus olitorius or Corchorus capsularis. The individual fibres are very long, soft and shiny. However, they can be tightly spun into a thread that is both strong and coarse, and used to create either three-strand or four-strand rope.

    Due to its natural construction, jute rope has a traditional ‘sandy brown’ appearance and can be easily dyed (in a variety of colours) using standard fabric dyes. This means it’s a fantastic option for decorative applications. It also boasts a number of other useful properties. For example, it is:

    • biodegradable and environmentally-friendly
    • lightweight
    • durable
    • resistant to heat
    • resistant to UV light
    • supple and flexible
    • soft to touch
    • suitable for knotting (with good knot retention)

    What can jute rope be used for?

    Essentially, jute rope is a low-cost alternative to hemp rope. The two are very similar in terms of their characteristics and, as such, they can be used for many of the same applications.

    For example, within the home, jute rope is often used for gardening, decking and interior design – perhaps installed as a contemporary staircase bannister or to create a unique shelving unit. Commercially, it can be used as gymnasium rope, tug-of-war rope, farm work rope, and more. It’s also regularly used within the retail industry for creating shop window displays.

    Do jute ropes shrink when wet?

    Yes. As they are made from natural fibres, jute ropes quickly absorb water and expand in width, which causes them to shrink in length. Therefore, when buying this type of rope for an outdoor application – where they are likely to get wet on a continuous or regular basis – we recommend adding a minimum of 10-15% extra to the total length of jute ropethat you require.

    How much does jute rope cost?

    The cost of jute rope varies depending on its quality, thickness and length.

    But keep in mind, it’s one of the most affordable natural ropes available on the market – and, here at Ropes Direct, we strive to make our prices as competitive as possible. When bought by the metre, our jute rope starts from just 36p for a 1m length of 6mm rope, to £4.80 for a 1m length of 36mm rope. We also offer jute rope reels from £21.42 and jute rope coils from as little as £51.60.

    These prices are fully inclusive of VAT. Our delivery charges are also very small and reasonable, calculated based upon the weight of your products. But if you live close by and want to keep costs to a minimum, you can also choose to collect your order (for free!) from our warehouse in Norfolk.
