synthetic ropes

Did you know?

In 1884, Louis Marie Hilaire Bernigaud, a French manufacturer from Chardonnet, invented and patented the very first synthetic thread, referred to at the time as artificial silk. This paved the way for many more synthetic materials over the years and many more inventions: : viscose rayon by Englishman Charles F. Cross in 1981, cellulose acetate rayon by another Englishman, Edward J.Bevan, in 1921 and fibreglass by Swiss Camille and Henri Dreyfus in 1925. Polyester was invented in 1950 by another Englishman, John T. Dickson.

It was from these synthetic materials that the first synthetic ropes and cords were made, which would soon replace natural raw materials such as hemp and sisal.

Less expensive and more resistant, these new materials would give way to many new inventions and innovations throughout countless different sectors including, of course, rope!
