why this product

You've probably known since grade school that jumping rope is a really great way to burn off some extra energy. In fact, playing double Dutch does double duty as one of the oldest and most tested forms of low-impact resistance training, helping to improve your breathing capacity and increase stamina. This easy, all-around beneficial exercise helps target the muscles in the lower half of your body, while strengthening your back and even improving posture. Since 1982, this company has been producing only the highest quality jumping ropes as an aid to athletes and enthusiasts of all ages. All components are sourced from within the European Union, giving them the ability to exercise full control of the manufacturing process, and guaranteeing a high level of quality. With hand-carved wooden handles and a thick, exceptionally durable leather cord, this particular jump rope is truly a handsome piece of equipment.

use & care

Portable, easy and fun, jumping rope can be done virtually anywhere, inside or outside, alone or with others. Try jumping rope in the morning as a way to help increase your energy throughout the day. For safety’s sake, it is recommended that your wear smart, athletic shoes during your routine, and that you avoid jumping rope while barefoot. Take care of your jump rope by not leaving it out of doors or letting it get wet and muddy, which can damage the leather. Store indoors in a dry place. The leather may be treated from time to time using a product like Skidmore’s Leather Conditioner.

production & design

Founded in 1982, this French company's reputation for quality has continued to grow over the last 30 years. Their philosophy, "simply effective", refers not only to the efficient, useful nature of their products, but also to the small scale production that goes into each rope. These jump ropes are manufactured in their own workshop using components sourced exclusively from the European Union, most from inside France. The handles on this rope are entirely handmade of wood from the French Alps. Choosing to work with craftsmen and suppliers that are as local as possible, the standards of quality behind these jump ropes are driven by the needs of their customers, and not simply by production costs.
