FROM PLANT TO ROPE

Cochorus Olitorius and Cochorus Capsularis are the two types of jute plant we use for our ropes. The story behind this plant- from plant to rope – is explained by a few short videos. Bondage Rope Production

Our Golden Tossa and White Jute

Our two lines of bondage rope are made from the jute plant. Both originating from West Bengal in India and produced to the yarn we use for rope production. Our White Jute is shipped to Japan where a small family-owned manufacturer is making them exactly to our specifications and quality. After production these are shipped and sold as individual rope or in rope kits.

Our Premium Golden Tossa is also grown in West Bengal but the yarn is shipped to a dedicated mill in Europe where it is produced under our own supervision and guidance. Also sold as single rope or in our rope kits.

All our products are tested in certified laboratories because we will only accept clean rope which is free from dangerous chemicals and only treated with organic oils or butter.

After production the large roles of rope (diameters 4.4mm, 5mm, 5.5mm and 6.6mm) are shipped to our warehouse and processed (cut, processed and packed) for sales to deliver the finest rope to your door (or dungeon).

Growing the jute fibre

Almost 85% of the world’s jute cultivation is concentrated in the Ganges Delta. About four months after planting, harvesting begins. The plants are usually harvested after they flower, before the flowers go to seed.

Retting

After harvesting, the jute stalks are tied into bundles and submerged in soft running water. The stalk stays submerged in water for 20 days. However, the retting process may require less time if the quality of the jute is better. 

Sorting

The extracted fibers is further washed with fresh water and allowed to dry on bamboo poles. Finally, they are sorted and tied into bundles to be sold into the primary market. Here the process continues to make the yarn.

Piling

The main function of pile breaker is to break the pile and serve it to the carding machines. The softener machine output material carried by pilemen through bile to the pile place for pilling.

Carding

The process by which long reeds of jute while passing through high speed pinned roller and broken down into an entangled mass and delivered in the form of ribbon uniform weight per unit length called jute carding.

Sorting

Spinning is the process for producing yarn from sliver obtained from Third drawing. The jute spinning frame machine is fitted with slip draft zone and capable of producing quality yarns at high efficiency.

jute fibre

Our jute is grown in West Bengal and the yarn is used for production in Japan and Europe. The processing of the jute is an intensive and accurate process where we control all steps and test the end product in certified laboratories.

Rope making

Although the example below might seem very old, modern techniques have not changed a lot. The process with the rope walk shows exactly how our rope is made; be it in  ‘slightly’ thinner sizes.
