Welcome to Rugged Rosaries!

Re-imagined rosaries born out of the hands of soldiers - That is what our team of dedicated faith-filled artisans handcraft every day in our rosary studio in Houston, Texas.

In the Beginning

A small rosary with plastic molded beads on a string, which was tied to a soldier's backpack, was our inspiration. The string was tied back together in places where it had broken and it was basically a tangled mess.

Yet, the soldier still had this little mess of a rosary tied to his backpack. Why? The answer is because the rosary is much more than beads on a string.
The rosary is strength, comfort, peace, and hope.
But we can improve on the little tangled mess! And that is what we did. We took military paracord and developed the very first of the**Original Paracord Rosaries.**We called that first rosary, back in 2012, the "Soldier's Combat Rosary".


Today we make and sell Rugged Rosaries to people all over the world.
*We may sell rosaries - but what we provide is strength, comfort, peace, and hope.*


Author Sam Guzman of The Catholic Gentleman called Rugged Rosaries "the humvee of rosaries".
National Catholic Register called Rugged Rosaries the "Strongest Rosaries on the Planet" - 05/11/15, Facebook.
