Cut and Restored Rope is a common magic routine in which a piece of rope is apparently cut, then shown whole again.

Many other objects preceded using ropes including strings, shoe or shirt laces and tapes.

Harlan Tarbell, by 1926, had popularized the effect among magicians which became known as the Tarbell Rope Trick.
