Established in 1905 Outhwaites ltd has over a century of rope making tradition. Whilst many things have changed during this time, we still have the ability to make our rope by hand in North Yorkshire.
From laying the rope to forming knots and splicing all of our products are created by our team of dedicated staff ensuring a level of quality that you'd expect from a British manufacturer.
