Knot / Rope


There are some difficulties when people work in the dim environment without lighting,
such as rescue working/emergency escape/freight/camping.
In these conditions,rope is always important,so I combine the solution with
thetraditional element — knot.

The material of the rope are made of high-strength plastic fiber which will give out
light when it bend.
