Bias is a word that not a lot of people are familiar with. Nevertheless, we all see and use it on a daily basis, without realizing it. In the world of textile, bias, bias binding or bias ribbon is a very common and necessary material. Bias comes from the French word for diagonal. It is therefore self-explanatory that this is a diagonal thread.
An important question that a lot of people ask themselves is: why do we need a diagonal thread (bias) instead of a straight thread? The answer is quite simple: a straight fabric is not elastic and cannot be stretched like diagonal binding material. Trying to make a round shape with a non-elastic fabric will lead to problems. It will create folds and creases. The resulting shape will never be fully round, but rather a polygon with many sides. When creating the binding material out of fabric, we put the thread at an angle of 12°, 38° or 45°. We do this with many sorts of materials, such as bio cotton, polyester cotton, vilene, polyester satin, and non-woven materials. By making an elastic binding (read: elastic bias), we can easily border round shapes, think of items such as parasols, lingerie, children’s clothing, table cloths, car seats, and carpets.
Since we produce everything on the customer’s demand, our bias ribbon is available in every width. The end product all depends on your wishes.
Do you want a particular colour for the fabric of your binding material? We offer our bias in many different colours. Please consult our colour chart to see them all. There you will also find the colours of our other products, such as our webbing tape.
We always start with bias on a roll. This is then cut to size, resulting in binding on discs. We always try to find the easiest way to deliver our products to you.
