Introduction

Paracord is an extremely versatile and strong material that can be used for crafting and survival. It is also relatively inexpensive and easy to find. Getting started with paracord is easy and only requires a few supplies.


What supplies you need to get started

First, you will need paracord. This can be purchased right here at United Paracord. We now have over 1000+ color options available. Depending on your project, you can choose whether or not you need a buckle, clasp or other hardware for your paracord design. We recommend scissors (to finish your project), a lighter (for burning the ends) and even a jig (optional) to be consistent with your bracelet measurements. Optional supplies include beads and charms to decorate your bracelets.
