We were just pointed at this website … it appears to be an interesting resource. Browsing further, there does not appear to be any method for contacting the site owner(s).
In any case, we would appreciate being added to the list of USA rope vendors – Renaissance Rope – http://www.renaissancerope.com.
We have been in business since 2008 and hand make ropes from Hemp, Jute, and Bamboo yarns. We have also recently started making conductive (Violet Wand reactive) ropes.
Hey Renaissance Rope. Thanks for the suggestion, I’ve updated http://rekink.com/bondage/rope-vendors/ with your vendor page. I’ve never heard of Violet Wand reactive ropes before. Can you explain the process a bit?
Conductive ropes are ropes where a conductive element has been twisted into the rope. When using a Violet Wand, the electricity will jump from the wand to the conductive element and from that to the person tied/wrapped in the rope. The person tied generally feels the zap everywhere the rope is (some skin is more sensitive than others, and it depends on how tight the rope is, etc).
We have located a source for the conductive element which carries the electricity exceptionally well (better than the Mylar or metallic embroidery thread some others use), holds up very well within a rope, and is nearly invisible with some colors of rope (particularly the natural Hemp & Jute).
Regular Violet Wand safety still applies (keep the rope out of moist tissue …. the genitals, head, etc) if going to electrify it.
Madame Butterfly was the first to offer such a rope, but due to her stroke last year is not presently making any ropes.
Do you have any pictures of the rope? Does it look any different than normal bondage rope?
