Braided, knitted and woven elastics often appear in a variety of industries like the underwear,- sign,- and confection industry. A semi-finished braided or woven elastic is a versatile component that can be found in daily applications like underwear, night wear, waistbands bracelets and party wear but also in industrial applications like beachflags, bedding & sheets, sport bags, suitcases etc. 

We use various materials and even combine materials to produce braided, knitted and woven elastics. There are several raw materials from which our elastics are produced. Ribbon & Rope choses the most suitable raw material as the basis for a product.

There are several reasons that are decisive in the selection process, but the most important are features & appearance.

  • FEATURES: The product must meet certain user characteristics. For example elastics for night wear need a soft touch to the skin.
  • APPEARANCE: The product must ultimately have a certain appearance. For example, our nightwear elastic are often produced with a customer logo.
