Elastics are created using natural or synthetic elastomers combined with other textile yarns. Each combination of materials has its own unique properties of strength, stretch and appearance.
Stretchline produces knitted and woven elastic to suit a broad range of applications. Knitted elastic has a more open structure and lends itself to more lightweight and breathable applications, and is capable of giving delicate design features. Woven elastic tends to be more laterally stable, firmer and denser, so offers more support and control.
From straps and bindings to waistbands and bandages, our elastics are made to a high standard. Stretchline’s knitted elastics can incorporate our unique Locksafe technology that prevents elastic from unravelling.
