Woven Elastic Manufacturers

For military, heavy-duty, commercial and apparel manufacturing, woven elastic is the premium, most durable choice for a wide range of applications. It doesn’t snag when abraded and it won’t get narrower as it stretches over time, giving it a great reputation for long-lasting, reliable elasticity without sacrificing durability. Elastic Cord and Webbing, Inc. is one of the top woven elastic manufacturers in America and provides manufacturers with a wide range of woven elastic options customized to their needs. For example:

Cotton Woven Elastic

Cotton woven elastic is a premium flat elastic that is in heavy demand for clothing and footwear manufacturers. Its weave is dense, smooth, soft and durable. It can also be used for high-end housewares and furnishing applications that require flat woven elastic.

Polyester Woven Elastic

Polyester woven elastic is also extremely durable and useful in a wide variety of applications where stretch and durability are essential. The polyester woven elastic is also less expensive and a bit shinier and not as absorbent as the cotton woven elastic, but is still every cost-effective in most applications without sacrificing quality. We have standard polyester and texture polyester options available.

Knitted Elastic Manufacturers

Fashion apparel, sports apparel and medical apparel manufacturers need bulk knitted elastic because it can be produced quickly, in large quantities, at affordable prices.

Benefits of Flat Knitted Elastic Band for Apparel Manufacturers

If you are an apparel manufacturer looking for the right knitted elastic manufacturers to supply your project, keep the following factors in mind:

  1. It’s dependable—Knitted elastic does not require as much rubber or fabric as woven or braided elastic. It remains flat, providing the reliable stretch to manufactured garments.
  2. It’s versatile—Our knitted elastic is great for medical clothing manufacturing. We are one of a few knitted elastic manufacturers that produce the latex-free knitted elastic necessary to reduce allergic reactions in medical settings. Our knitted elastic is made of either polyester or nylon, which makes it durable and extremely cost effective as well.
  3. It’s customizable—We provide apparel manufacturers with bulk knitted elastic in several widths that come in the most-used, standard colors: white, optical white, black, beige, white with a blue strip. We can also custom dye knitted elastic tape to your color specifications. Widths vary from the smallest at 1/4 inch to the widest at 14 inches, with 17 different widths in between.

A note on stretch from your knitted elastic manufacturers:

In addition to the choice you have with our bulk knitted elastic coming in different colors and widths, you can also choose the stretch level. For example, our 1-inch, 85% knitted elastic is good for many medical and orthopedic needs. The narrow, heavy-duty ¼-inch knitted elastic bands have a long stretch that stays flat and is good for children’s clothing, leisurewear and sheets.

Cotton Herringbone Tape Suppliers: 3 Things You Need to Know

Elastic Cord and Webbing, Inc. is one of the nation’s top cotton herringbone tape suppliers, serving specialty apparel and fashion apparel manufacturers in a wide variety of fields. If you need to purchase bulk cotton herringbone tape for an apparel manufacturing project, we provide many options that can fit your order specifications.

1. Cotton Herringbone Tape Widths

We sell cotton herringbone tape in widths ranging from 1/4-inch all the way to 4 inches, with many measurements in between. Such a wide variety of standard widths can be used in clothing manufacturing, binding and finishing the edges of bags, wallets, cases, apron ties, medical clothing and many other applications.

2. Cotton Herringbone Tape Colors

All of these standard widths can be ordered in direct black, vat-died black, neutral and white. And unlike some cotton herringbone tape suppliers, we can also custom-dye any of our cotton herringbone tape selections for large orders to coordinate with the color of the apparel you’re manufacturing. Be aware that some running is possible on custom-dyed orders.

3. Cotton Herringbone Tape Styles and Tensile Strengths

Cotton herringbone tape is a lighter, thinner material that works in clothing manufacturing where bulk is undesirable. Each width can be ordered in lightweight, medium weight or heavy styles to fit your specifications.

Cotton herringbone tape is also a “green” manufacturing choice that is popular with natural apparel manufacturers and goes well with any type of cotton clothing manufacturing project. It also becomes an additional selling point for companies marketing eco-friendly clothing.

The best way to determine which width, color and weight you need is to call the top cotton herringbone tape suppliers and discuss your needs.
