As far as natural ropes go, it all starts with a plant. High-quality fibers and strong rope are inextricably linked to the cultivation process. If plants receive a high volume of water and/or nutrition, they develop larger leaves and stalks from which longer fibers can be obtained. In turn, better quality fibers produce stronger rope. Ledent sources natural raw materials from wherever the plants flourish.
Natural fiber is biodegradable. The tensile strength of natural fiber is usually lower than that of synthetic fiber. However, the advantage of natural fiber is that the rope shows visible signs of reduced tensile strength or wear and tear. This is less obvious with synthetic fiber.
