The fascinating world of bias cut and how Byetsa has become the undisputed leader in this sector

One of the sewing secrets that has fascinated designers and seamstresses alike for centuries is bias cut. This technique, which involves cutting the fabric at a 45-degree angle to its grain, provides a unique elasticity that allows the fabric to drape and conform to the body’s curves.

It is used in creating full dresses, providing elegant draping and flow, or in the form of strips to finish, adorn, and reinforce garment edges.

With over 50 years of experience in the textile market, Byetsa is an international reference in bias tape production. Our company specializes in all its variations, offering two product lines: Fany and Byor, designed to meet the most demanding needs in home, fashion, consumer, packaging, and industrial sectors.

We manufacture bias cuts in all their typologies and modalities, from cut bias (flat), highly demanded in the industrial sector of textile manufacturing, to sewn bias (folded), ideal for fashion and home applications.

The art of bias sewing: Precision and experience required

Once the fabric has been bias cut, the sewing stage begins. There are different types of seams suitable for bias tape, each with particular characteristics that allow for different finishes and styles. Here are some of them…

  • Overlapping seams: This seam starts by overlapping two or more pieces of material. One or more rows of stitches are made close to the edge, allowing for a clean and uniform finish. This type of seam is especially useful for garments that require a flat and discreet seam.

  • Lapped seams: In this seam, the materials are overlapped and stitched together with one or more rows of stitches. Unlike overlapping seams, lapped seams are used in situations where greater seam strength is needed, such as in heavily used garments.

  • Bonded seams: They are formed by folding a binding strip over the edge of the fabric stacks. Then, both edges of the binding are stitched to the fabric with one or more rows of stitches. This technique is often used in shirt collars, providing a professional and polished appearance.

  • Decorative stitching: Decorative stitching not only joins fabric pieces but also adds a design element to the final product. These stitches, following a line or ornamental design in a fabric fold, add style and elegance to any garment.

  • Bound seams: They involve stitching the edges with stitches that overcast the raw edges. They are ideal for achieving a clean finish on edges, such as hems or invisible fly fronts and linings.

  • Joining elements: In some cases, it is necessary to add additional components to the edges, such as elastic tapes. This type of sewing requires precision and care to ensure a perfect fit.

  • Simple construction: In this seam, a single piece of fabric is turned into two edges. It is commonly used in loops, providing a clean and professional finish.

When selecting the type of seam, it is important to consider three fundamental elements: seam size (measured by its depth, length, and width), seam slippage strength (the amount of force required to move a total of ¼ of the opposite sets of threads perpendicular to the seam line), and seam strength (the force required to open the seam).
