Cheap Hold Fast like pedal straps

I would like to get some pedal straps (no toe clips) for my bike. I don't want to pay a lot of money for them nor do I want them to be "Made in Brooklyn". Are there any cheaper knockoffs? I don't want any lettering nor any logos.

You can make them for relatively cheap with the same rope they use for rachet straps

Looks like the website is down too. Now it makes me wonder if it is coincidence or something more?

What pedals are you guys using with your straps (not toe-clips). I am thinking of getting MKS Sylvan Track or MKS GR9, I hope they work with them though.
