Parachute cord (also known as paracord or 550 cord) is a light-weight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers
found the cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a
general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians.
This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during the STS-82, the second space shuttle mission to repair the Hubble space telescope. The braided
sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a
relatively smooth texture. Further, the all-nylon construction makes paracord
fairly elastic. Depending on the application, that can be either an asset or a liability.
We make both bracelets and fobs, the basic styles of which are shown below. All bracelets are made with a buckle using a single cobra stitch. If you prefer, we can also make them with a bead or a button. Fobs are 3" with a 1/2" loop, although we can accommodate any length. We also make bracelets for children.
