The composition of our elastic bias binding is a true reflection of this dedication: 97% pure cotton that ensures a soft and comfortable texture, and 3% elastane that gives it that elasticity so sought after in the world of clothing.
But what is elastane? Also known as lycra or spandex, it is a synthetic fiber that has revolutionized the textile world due to its ability to stretch, adapt and maintain its original shape with commendable resistance.
The origin of this amazing fiber dates back to 1958, being the fruit of the ingenuity of chemist Joseph Shivers, who patented it under the emblematic trade name of LYCRA.
This fiber was not only a revolution due to its properties, but also because of how it transformed the fashion and sports landscape, offering a new horizon of possibilities in design and functionality.
