A synthetic alternative.
Pro Manila rope is designed for applications where you want the look of classic manila without some of the drawbacks of regular manila.
Pro Manila will not rot or shrink when it gets wet like manila will. This product is actually made using a unique processing method that makes it different from other polypropylene ropes. In order to get the "manila rope look" we start with a flat polypropylene film and then use that to make the individual rope strands. The result is a rope that replicates the look and feel of manila.
