Jute shibari kits

Jute kits

Jute is the rope of choice in Japan for shibari because it holds knots well and is light and flexible, so this is our preference. These kits are based on Tossa Lite Medium 5.5mm . The medium lay (twist) means it is soft and flexible but the double yarns means it is also durable and forgiving of rough handling. The good news is that it only needs dry treating, i.e. oiling and singeing off.

You can test the water with the Mini or Midi or jump right in with a full set of 8 ropes and a short 'get out the shit bit' for those inevitable times when your rope is just a bit too short and another would be way too much. Sets can be based on 8m (26ft approx.) or 10m (33ft approx) lengths, which you can trim down to your perfect length if need be.

We are currently in the process of adding many more options, which include different rope and tutorials. Watch this space!

Budget kits

The Mini, Midi and Maxi kits all include a choice of NaWax treatment wax or Rope Treatment Oil* to keep your rope in tip top condition and EMT shears with a flashlight to help keep your partner safe. There is also a copy of my best-selling instructional DVD set, 'Japanese Rope Bondage: Tying people, not parcels' with a free upgrade to the enhanced and updated on-line version on ShibariClasses.com to get you started on the right track.

Tossa Lite Medium is a budget rope which only needs oiling or waxing and burning off before use as it is so soft and flexible that no wet treatment is needed.

Newaza kits

Newaza is the Japanese word for floor-work, i.e. tying that does not include suspension. These kits all include our Econawa Newaza rope, instead of Tossa Lite Medium. This is a very high grade rope which is being sold at a very low price as it has a small, but invisible defect, that makes it unsuitable for suspension (click for details). However, it is perfect for floor-work; you won't find nicer rope at this price. The fibre is extraordinarily clean and virtually fuzz-free. It certainly doesn't need wet treatment and burning off is almost not essential.

The kit comes with lifetime access to our comprehensive on-line course from ShibariClasses, 'Shibari: The Easy Way', which is the perfect instructional to get you started.  You won't just learn ties, you will discover how to tie creativity and with emotional connection. Our unique way of teaching will create a deep understanding which reduces shibari to a simple formula which will ensure fast, effective and efficient progress.

Suspension kits

The Extra kit is for more experienced players who require a full suspension set and already have the expertise or are under instruction. The instructional DVDs are replaced by a pair of 6mm Xtra reinforced (untreated) jute for critical suspension up-lines and a laminated wood shibari ring or lightweight steel shibari ring
