The materials that are used to make outdoor furniture are always evolving and becoming more interesting, more impressive and more durable. The technology has advanced and this allows new innovative designs and styles to emerge. Over the last few seasons, rope has become the go-to material for fresh new designs.
We have carefully selected and curated a number of pieces that are made with rope. The success of these products has allowed us to expand the number of styles that we can offer greatly. Our rope products are carefully crafted in Italy, Belgium, France, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
Almost all of the rope pieces are hand-woven by amazing craftsmen. The attention to detail is exquisite. The rope strands are made of thermoplastic polypropylene fibers. These synthetic fibers have been engineered specifically for outdoor use, and with proper care and maintenance, they can continue to be weather resistant and look stunning.
Rope is such an exciting material because the possibilities for the number of different looks are endless. The thickness of the strands, the colors, the texture, and the patterns are all considered for each design. Rope can be used for decorative or structural applications where it is woven, wrapped, braided, or knotted like Macramé. It is applied around aluminum, steel, and teak frames to make the most interesting pieces. Some of the rope is very thick cordage, and it is evident that multiple strands are tightly braided together, and other times it can be thin and appear more elegant. The rope strands can be round or flat, we call the flat pieces strapping. The strapping can also be braided and looped around the frame. We also offer some crocheted pieces, the weaving is even more intricate and precise. When the woven cord is used for the seat, many times, you don’t need to add a cushion because the rope strength and weave have the right amount of give to be very comfortable.
