Excerpt from Rope and Twine Information

The history of Cincinnati and its nearby cities and suburbs is most closely connected with the twine and rope industry. While Boston, New York and Philadelphia are the towns with the largest rope plants of the country, Cincinnati is the home city of the real American Twine industry, and from the foundation made in Cincinnati has sprung up the many twine factories in the United States today.

This fact was largely occasioned by Cincinnati's proximity to the Kentucky hemp fields, and for many years before the Civil War, Cincinnati and its environs was the home of hundreds of small rope manufacturers who spun the yarn at home, and with a small rope walk laid up the home-made yarn into Cordage, which Cordage was used largely in the South for baling cotton. Up to 1860 all cotton was baled and bound with hemp rope.

Many of the present prominent citizens are the descendants of rope makers, whose wives spun the yarn, and whose grandfathers took the yarn into their little rope walks and laid them up by hand. Many of the Cincinnati jobbing houses owe their origin to the fact that these journeymen rope makers wanted an outlet for their goods, and when the Cincinnati jobber went Last to buy his supplies he would ship in return, as payment for the goods bought, Kentucky Hemp Rope, and Kentucky Hemp Twine, and thus founded an exchange of products which is being kept up to this day.

The records of the United States Government show that in 1365 the maximum production of Kentucky Hemp Twine and Cordage was reached and the amount was 65,000 tons. This amount is small today, as one manufacturer of Binder Twine makes more than this alone. Statistics show that in 1916 the consumption of Cordage Twine was over 432,000 tons in the United States and in all probability it will keep on increasing. Shortly after 1865 the introduction of Manila Hemp and other Hard Fibres cut down the use of hemp, but the principal decrease in the amount of hemp produced was caused bj the introduction of steel bands which replaced the hemp bale rope, and the introduction of Jute as a substitute for Hemp.
