About the Artist
Cordage began in 1998 in the small town of Waldoboro, just off the midcoast of Maine’s scenic coastline, where a need for quality rope was as necessary as butter with a fresh caught lobster. David Bird began with a small crew and turned his expertise and master skills into one of America’s finest rope manufacturer of braided ropes and cords. David also had another idea making products using discarded fishing rope which in turn started a whole new business!
“The Right Mat” is a door mat hand made from recycled lobster fishing three strand ropes. New federal regulations mandate that lobster fisherman can no longer use floating line to connect their traps together, because the northern right whale was becoming entangled in the floating line. The fishermen now have to use sinking line to connect their traps.
Today we still offer “The Right Mat” but with dimensioning supply and to meet high demand, we now offer our “Maine Rope Mat” and Products and now “Recycled Plastic Mat”! Custom Cordage is also an industry leader and a prime manufacturer of Braided Cordage Products in a large variety of colors. Double Braids, Solid Braids, Single Braids, Diamond Braids, Twill Braids, and Stretch (shock) cords are all available in our standard fibers.
