Our braided elastics are Made in USA using premium quality fibers. Braided elastic is often the choice when better quality and narrow widths are needed.They are made by covering rubber with either cotton or polyester in a combination that allows it to stretch - it will get narrow when stretched - but has excellent recovery.
The rubber and polyester or cotton fibers are braided very closely together making it strong and durable and longer lasting than knitted elastics. It is great for use in underwear, dance apparel, swimsuits, sporting goods, tool bags cloth diapers & swim diapers. The Polyester & Cotton braided elastics are the top choice because of its consistent quality, tension, long life & resistance to swimming pool and laundry chemicals.
