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.
