STEP 1: Choose Your Style:


If you're not sure which type of webbing material is right for you, consider the differences between elastic and Velcro strapping. Elastic is used primarily for stretchable applications, while Velcro (hook-and-loop) is utilized where adhesion is needed. At Strapworks, our elastic webbing has 40 percent stretch, so it has plenty of give without getting loose. Plus, this elastic webbing features excellent memory so it won't get stretched out over time thanks to interwoven strands of rubber and synthetic fibers. Due to its stretching capabilities, elastic straps are most commonly used for suspenders, bathing suits, hair ties, underwear and watch bands.

Hook-and-loop straps feature the familiar technology with two sides: one a bit scratchy and one a bit softer. The two sides stick together securely while still being easy to pull apart. That's why hook-and-loop is used in a wide variety of applications, including costumes, snowboarding pants, wristbands or clothing cuffs. Here at Strapworks, you can get double-sided self-wrapping webbing or classic hook and loop straps that come with two pieces (one scratchy, one soft).

Now that you know more about both of these unique types of webbing, you can find the perfect fit your next DIY project. If you've decided you need both elastic and Velcro, you can order combination Velcro elastic strap here as well! Simply select your preferred material and you'll be able to choose from our vast selection of elastic and Velcro strapping widths and colors currently available.
