“Fiber for Rope and Twine” was an industry film produced for the Cordage Institute
in the 1950’s. The 18-minute film shows the importance of the farm market to ropemaking
in the United States.
Nearly forgotten for over 50 years, the 16mm film reel was discovered in Bill Hagenbuch’s
basement during the making of “Ropewalk”. Numerous film clips are included in “Ropewalk:
A Cordage Engineer’s Journey Through History”.
