AMATSUNAWA ROPE NOMENCLATURE
20. October 2022 - Bad Kötzting, Germany
For clarification, we use the following system to identify our jute rope products:
AMATSUNAWA 27, 30, 33 (raw jute rope from our old batch)
27, 30 and 33 refer to the number of yarns within raw jute ropes produced by our German supplier, respectively equal to ø5, ø5.5 and ø6mm. This product is longer on sale via our AMATSUNAWA shop but 100m coils of this product can be purchased via TheRopestry.
RAW AMATSUNAWA 4/0, 4/5, 5/0, 5/5, 6/0 (current rope available in the Amatsunawa online shop)
4/0, 4/5, 5/0, 5/5 and 6/0 refer to the diameters of jute ropes produced by our Japanese supplier, respectively equal to ø4, ø4.5, ø5, ø5.5 and ø6mm, available raw or conditioned ready-for-use.
‘Jouyoku’ is the product identification of our Japanese-made 4/0, 4/5, 5/0, 5/5 and 6/0 rope that has been vegan preconditioned ready-for-use and is available as MINI-ROLL or MAXI-ROLL. The underlying rope used for our Jouyoku product is the RAW AMATSUNAWA rope.
JOUYOKU WINS BEST IN CLASS
Jouyoku was pitted against 6 competitors at an independent ‘Rope Tasting’, and came top by a big margin. Read the results in KINBAKU TODAY, the magazine of the art of Japanese erotic rope bondage for the Western-speaking world. "Flavor of The Rope"

FAQ - Things we are sure you want to know about jute rope
What is the breaking strength of jute rope?
Stephen Hastings is a process development engineer with decades of business collaboration with Japanese corporations. As a seasoned rope bondage practitioner, he is the technical expert behind the research and development that went into the specification of our yarns and the production of our ropes.
He intuitively knows what a jute rope designed for the application should feel like, and has many years of experience selling jute ropes in wholesale quantities. His integrity, reputation and in–depth experience, make him a highly appreciated expert in the field of Kinbaku/Shibari rope bondage across the globe.
Michaela Hofmann got caught up in Stephen’s ropes in the search for a relaxing new spare time activity. Very soon she developed an interest in the rope itself and how it’s made and treated. Since 2018 she has sold hand–conditioned ready–to–use jute ropes to a global market, and in October 2021 became an Etsy–Seller Star, based on excellent customer service, 5–star reviews and reliable delivery times.
She developed a vegan conditioning to reduce hair and fibre loss, adding body, definition and lustre to produce a low–maintenance ready–to–use rope with a silky feel. Shipping perfectly conditioned, quality–checked, ready–to–use ropes is her daily mission.
