Sometimes you want to do restrictive Eastern-style bondage. For those kinds of bondage, we strongly recommend using hemp or jute rope.
But if you're more into the western or Bettie Page style, bamboo silk may be the perfect rope for you. This rope is made of 70% bamboo for strength, and 30% silk for softness. It is a great bedroom or "pajama" rope -- unbelievably soft and luxurious.
If you've already explored tying with cotton or nylon rope, bamboo silk is a very natural transition to higher-end natural fiber ropes. Because this rope is so soft and has very low friction or tooth, it is very easy to use for extremely decorative knot-work. It will also require more knots to stay in place compared to hemp or jute, and you should expect your rope to move with the body.
One thing to be aware of is that the same features that make bamboo silk so soft also render it extremely delicate. With extremely delicate care, you can expect this rope to last for about six months of moderate use, and it should only be washed if absolutely necessary. If it becomes necessary to wash it, treat bamboo silk like antique lingerie - cold hand wash and gentle line dry, please.
You can peruse our many colors of DeGiotto Bamboo Silk rope here at the cafe & boutique, or order bamboo silk online to have it delivered directly to your gift recipient (or yourself! We won't judge . . . )
