Woven elastic has 40% stretch and excellent memory. Elastic is made up of interwoven strands of rubber or an imitative synthetic fiber. Strapworks carries woven elastic straps in black and white in sizes ranging from 1/2-inch to 3 inches wide. We also carry a new 3/8-inch braided elastic that is also tubular for improved strength. Elastic is commonly used in a variety of different close-fitting products including suspenders, underwear, bathing suits, hair scrunchies and bras. Elastic may also be used to make watch bands and similar accessories. Our elastic is made of 73 percent polyester, 27 percent rubber latex based products.
