It is a standard lanyard or diamond knot. Here is one tutorial. A Google search will show many others

I imagine hemp would be too flexible and loose as a brush, but is there anything apart from manilla that would work well?

Polyester rope would make a nice stiff brush. I have seen cotton rope used to make a nice dish washing swab. Perhaps a soft hemp would do as well
