麻縄 (Japanese)

Asanawa is rope made from bast fiber plants. Such plants include hemp, jute, flax (linen) and ramie. Asa is generally translated as hemp in English.[1]


  1. Translating asanawa as hemp rope often causes confusion for English speaking rope enthusiasts as many make a distinction between hemp and jute ropes.
