A bias binding with a shirting fabric where the colour, look and feel are very similar to fabrics used in haute couture
In this post we would like to introduce all the features of our very own coloured elastic bias binding, composed of 97% cotton and 3% elastane.
Elastane, lycra or spandex is a synthetic fibre known for its excellent elasticity and strength, which was invented and patented by the chemist Joseph Shivers in 1958; it is commonly known by the trade name of LYCRA and its appearance marked a turning point in many sectors within the textile industry at the time.
Its use has grown exponentially throughout the years, and it is a fibre that is widely used, especially in sports, thanks to its flexibility, its properties and light-weight feel.
At Byetsa, as a worldwide leading company in the production of bias binding tapes, we saw this growth and evolution of fabrics to compositions with a little more elastane coming and we went ahead by launching our own line of elastic bias binding made from cotton and elastane.
We are talking about a very particular fabric, reminiscent of those used in the world of haute couture, both in terms of feel, colour and appearance, and we are proud to say that it is now a basic fabric, both for the industry and for the haberdashery sector, due to its price and because we supply it ready to use, in the ready-to-wear style.
Additionally, both our brand dedicated to the industrial sector and the one we have for the haberdashery sector, Byor and Fany, include coloured elastic bias binding in their catalogue, with different options to choose from.
For example, with Byor we market a cut elastic bias binding, a profiled bias binding and a pair of live bias bindings, one with a “normal” core and the other with an elastic core. In the case of Fany, we have profiled bindings and elastic bindings.
All these bias binding fabrics, as mentioned above, are made of 97% cotton and 3% elastane, and are available in a wide range of colours.
Due to their elasticity and the high percentage of cotton they contain, they are much more comfortable and pleasant to wear than most lycra or elastic synthetics on the market.
This has allowed us to introduce ourselves into and increase our presence in the sports sector throughout the years, and at the same time we have been forced to improve and optimise both our facilities and our production systems, in order to meet the high demand that we have had for many years. We are becoming more efficient, productive and increasing the quality of all our products year after year.
What are the most popular and most sought-after widths for our customer base?
The widths that we usually sell the most and which are in high demand both in Spain and in other markets, both European and international, are 12 mm, 18 mm, 25 mm and 30 mm.
On the other hand, we must not forget to talk about our live bias binding with elastic core, as it is one of our most successful products which sets us apart from our direct competitors in the market.
As far as colour stability is concerned, there are no noticeable differences in the shades of each batch of fabric.
