I have always thought that ropes could be good material for new designs and in fact there are a few out there already. I love rope because it is resistant, doesn’t bobble, is highly tactile even if preserves the idea of softness typical of textile and, above all, it carries with it the fascination of sailing and fishing. I really would like to buy a rope rug, I saw a few in La Maddalena but they were black and expensive. Maybe I shall make my own!
If you fancy a bit of DIY to get you in the autumn mood, follow Design Sponge‘s advice and make your own rope door stop with sea ropes but also with climbing ropes!
