Industrial flat bias: production, uses and applications

Bias tapes with a flat bias are made by cutting the strips at a 45-degree angle. They are usually used in the finishing of armholes and necklines. They are light pieces and their application is basic if it is done using a funnel.

In the following image, you can see how it is applied.

How are bias tapes with a profiled or folded bias?

Biases with a profiled bias are those in which the fabric is cut into strips with the grain on the bias and the raw edges are folded down along each side of the strip. Depending on the type of profiled bias binding, it will be folded more or less often and depending on the finish it will be left open, closed or sewn.

Like flat bias binding, they are lightweight and easy to apply. They work well as a lining for children’s clothing or to finish off armholes and necklines, among many other functions.

Living biases with a soul: what is their main attribute?

The main attribute of bias tapes with a live bias with a soul is that the strips are wrapped around a cord and a closed stitching, close to the cord. 

The finishes that are made with this type of industrial bias binding have a decorative finish and in the fashion industry they are used in the hems of skirts for example.

One of the most used industrial biases: bias decor

types of industrial bias

Bias ribbons with a decor bias are the ones with the most complex manufacturing process. In this case, the raw edges are folded under along both sides of the strip. The strip is then folded lengthwise, slightly off-centre. Then the crocheted edge is sewn along the perimeter of the bias binding.

Decor bias binding can be used to finish almost any unfinished fabric edge. They are perfect for a decorative finish on a curved edge and can be used in many quilting techniques and other sewing projects such as quilts, tablecloths, bibs (works great on all types of children’s clothing), among many other applications.
