Branded Recycled Fishing Rope

Branded and framed recycled fishing rope. My custom machined branding irons are heated over coals and different nautical silhouettes are burned straight into the rope. This process exposes the bright internal colors of the rope giving each piece a unique appearance.

Rope Coasters and Bowls

Recycled lobster trap rope coasters and bowls are handmade from 100% recycled rope. All rope has been sanitized and sun dried. Coasters come in sets of 4. Rope bowls can be used for many kitchen and bathroom applications. Both rope products come in many different sizes and colors depending on rope availability.

Recycled Climbing Rope Doormats

My handmade doormats are made from 100% recycled climbing rope. Dynamic climbing rope is much more robust than traditional lobster trap rope mats. These mats can be used in any weather, are easy to clean, and come in a variety of beautiful colors.
