In the olden days, a simple rope could awake the imagination and be given a great deal of uses.That is how the skipping rope became popular; the fancier kids had ones with wooden handles on each end for better grip.
The basic technique is simple: jump while the rope slides under the feet and over the head. This one is made in Sant Pere de Torrelló a charming little town near Barcelona. Manuel, with over 50 years experience in the trade, handcrafts these useful utensils and toys.
