    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    So that's just the nylon? not embedded in resin? That's very cool!

    Interesting. Never would have thought to do it that way, but the texture of the mesh should give it a nice feel. As long as the ends stay fastened it should wear well. Nice.

    I'll second (or third) the "very cool" comment, and agree the texture must feel nice in the hand.
