Thomas Taylor - Historical Ropemaker Thomas Taylor - Historical Ropemaker (Costumed) is a small, bespoke business keeping the ancient craft of ropemaking alive with a manual ropemaking machine and rope walk. My products are made using either locally grown Flax and locally sourced Beeswax or purchased Jute, Hemp and Maille from leading suppliers. Using natural fibres and manual equipment, I recreate the process for making cordage, rope and nets, useful commodities throughout history.
