Tibetan rope incense is made by monks living in monasteries and is prepared in the tradition of the Monastic Orders of Tibet. They craft the incense by hand through a process that involves bundling the ingredients in a special hand prepared rice paper, then rolling and twisting it into a small rope-like braided form. The result is more of a thick braided string than a rope which should be burnt in a metal dish or on an ash bed, special incense burner. This rope type of incense can produces a substantial amount of smoke, and it can quickly overpower a small room so use sparingly. Multi-Purpose Wooden Incense Burner With Storage works well with rope incense (A02-TIB4).
