PARACORD SURVIVAL BRACELETS           

 

      Joseph Jude Brien circa 2017

Paracord Bracelets -


“Paracord” is short for “parachute cord”. It is very strong rope, also called “550 cord” because it can support 550 pounds. It really is used for the ropes on parachutes. “Genuine” paracord has seven interior strands which can be separated and used for fishing line, sewing, etc.


Each bracelet uses about ten feet of cord. Your bracelet can be unraveled in an emergency and used for replacing a broken shoe lace, fashioning a belt, building a shelter, starting a friction fire and more!


Paracord craft evolved from the ancient maritime tradition of  “ropework” - a pastime of 18th and 19c. sailors.  An offshoot of tying knots used on ship’s rigging, sinnets and other elaborate fancywork were used to create bellropes, beckets, bracelets - even curtains. Sailors used natural rope, including, hemp, sisal, manila and jute.


This workshop can be presented as a single “mini” activity for birthday parties, or multiple “mini” workshops for fairs and festivals.
