Description

Tsubaki Oil is made from the seeds of a particular strain of camellia that grows in Japan, the camellia japonica.

Tsubaki (?) has been used for centuries in Asia to nourish the skin and hair - it's properties are known to penetrate deeply and quickly without leaving an oily residue, making tsubaki oil a perfect selection for conditioning natural fibre ropes. In Japan tsubaki was a favoured oil for use in preserving wooden tools and other perishable instruments, meaning tsubaki oil will give you one of the most authentic traditional experiences, especially if you pair this with our asanawa rope range.

Made from 100% camellia japonica (Japanese Camellia) this oil has a light golden colour and is almost odourless. Our tsubaki oil is cold pressed and 50ml is sufficient to condition up to 100-120 metres of rope.

How to Apply Tsubaki Oil

To use, place a few drops of pure tsubaki oil in your palm, or on a leather cloth, and lightly run your ropes threw. You should use the oil sparingly – it will spread further than expected – oily ropes are never appealing.

Tsubaki Oil Hints:

Tsubaki is rich in vitamins, containing A, B, C, and E, it is also a natural source of polyphenol and antioxidants that are promoted as safeguarding your skin from the damaging UV rays. Camellia oil is known to be an effective multi-purpose moisturiser, so your rope bunny will appreciate this selection.

**LIMITED RUN** (Once Sold there is no more stock)

Our Furoshiki are cut from 100% cotton cloth made in Japan, then finished with overlocked edges to prevent frying and ensure your purchase lasts.

55cm x 55cm square (21.5" x 21.5"), the material is a decent medium size, sufficient to hold most rope sets.

We have 3 different patterns to choose from, and 6 different colours, but this is a limited run. We are currently unable to secure more of this material, once these are sold out they will not be restocked.

 

Why Use Furoshiki

  • Keeps sets of seperate 
  • Easily portable
  • Ensure's your rope is not sitting on dirt/dust

Multifilament polypropylene or MFP is a recent arrival on the bondage scene.  Polypropylene ropes were previously dismissed for their hard and stiff plastic characteristics.  However, MFP has become popular because the advance multifilament manufacturing has produced a rope that is very soft and extremely flexible.

MFP now rivals nylon in popularity within western bondage circles and being twisted this rope still leaves beautiful patterns on the skin.  Polypropylene also repels moisture making the material a perfect choice for kinbaku riggers who like to play whilst their bottom’s are tied.

Multifilament polypropylene can be a little slippery with some types of knots, but with care it can be used for all types of bondage, including suspension.  Be aware though, that as a synthetic rope MFP shares the low heating point, where even small amounts of friction risk causing rope burn.

Whilst polypropylene rope has a lower breaking point than nylon, it also exhibits lower stretch, making it a good choice of rope for beginners and any experts alike.

Made from worsted polyester, this rope has been especially dyed and woven to resemble natural hemp.

Whilst much softer and more pleasant on the skin than course natural fibres, this twisted synthetic hemp rope is stronger than it’s pure hemp counterpart, and also has lower stretch characteristics making it a safer and more secure option for suspension.

Extremely abrasion resistant, 100% polyester rope is extremely easy to handle and typically warmer to touch than other synthetic ropes.

The worsting process produces a smooth yarn where the fibres lie parallel.  Normally polyester ropes have the major advantage over other synthetic ropes due to the ability to retain flexibility over time, and worsted yarn polyester only enhances these characteristics.
