What is the Right Webbing to Use
benefits and cons, so it is important to
choose a material and type of production that meets your exact needs. Below, we
will highlight a few of the most common materials and their applications.
Webbing is used to create:
Bag handles for purses, bags,
and backpacks - Most manufacturers
choose a style of either nylon or polyester. Any webbing can technically be
used to create bag handles, but nylon is softer and more reliable than
polyester for these applications.
Canvas edges for fastener
reinforcement – feel and color should dictate the material you choose because,
for these applications, the material does not matter much. Webbing is installed
on the underside of the canvas, and so UV is not an issue. If you had to make a
choice, consider poly webbing because it is the least likely to shrink.
Hiking straps should be a flat
material that is easy to sew. Flat poly webbing has the highest UV rating, and
the webbing is further protected with padding added to the sleeve that encases
Pet collars need to be reliable
and soft, which is why you can acquire these products made from nylon and
organic cotton. Comfort for the animal is the most important thing to keep in
mind when constructing dog collars and harnesses.
