We have always been a manufacturer of elastic bands. We weave, weave and knit elastic tapes and straps, and have, over the decades, built up unrivalled experience of these highly technical products, which play a decisive role in the quality and durability of your productions .
It is our in-depth knowledge of the problems of ageing and resistance to washing that enables us to guide you in the best possible way in your choice of manufacturing woven, braided or knitted elastic incorporating elastane or latex, bare rubber or gimped yarns. The relevance of these choices will prevent you from ruining the intrinsic quality of your productions because of a few centimetres of elastic ribbon which fades, swirls, shrinks, or loses all elasticity after two washes or exposure to sea water !
Precise technical data, defined by a well-equipped internal laboratory, are associated with each elastic, thus ensuring you a total reliability of these components, the Achilles' heel of your confections !
We offer you countless technical possibilities: buttonholes, widths from 2 mm to 120 mm, astrakhan elastics, printed, jacquard, flame retardant, very flexible or super reinforced, dyed in all colours, delivered in one roll or in millions of metres. As you can see, we have been real specialists in these products since...1784!

Plastic overmouldings on elastics
The best elastic quality is achieved by weaving, especially if gum or elastane yarns are used with gimped rubber or elastane threads.
We carry out the covering in-house in order to obtain woven elastics that correspond exactly to the very high level of quality that we consider essential to avoid any problems of ageing of our customers' productions.
We also weave huge quantities of Jacquard elastic ribbons for pants, women's lingerie, seawear and major sportswear brands .
All dyeing, heat setting, printing and laser cutting operations are carried out in our factories, and the technical possibilities are almost infinite!
The manufacture of braided elastic is the best solution to meet many needs:
When the necessary restoring force is really strong, for example, or when our customers are looking for a round elastic, of course!
One of our group's factories is entirely specialised in this type of manufacturing.
Some of our customers are looking for large quantities of elastic at very low prices, with reduced quality constraints, corresponding to their needs.
In this case, knitting is unbeatable in terms of quality/price ratio!
We have a very large fleet of knitting machines which enables us to compete with the best Asian producers, while giving you the advantages of a fast and reliable French supplier.
