elastic-band / waist-belt
Elastic is seeing a continued rise in demand for use in innerwear, sportswear, casual ladies’ and men’s wear and the like. We have assembled and extensive line-up to meet various needs according to these uses, including weave and knit structure, thickness and texture, and elasticity and recovery ability. We produce waistband mainly used for the waist of men’s pants on an order made basis. We have factories for both elastic webbing and waistband in Japan and overseas, and we can respond to a wide variety of demands.
Highly stretchable elastic webbing has so far been heavily used for innerwear and sportswear. As fashions have become more casual in recent years, demand for use in ladies’ and men’s wear has also been increasing. In addition, although elastic webbing was originally generally used on the insides of garments, an increasing number of garments now use elastic on their outsides, and there is also a lot of demand for products that are highly designed and distinctive in terms of their raw materials, colors, patterns, and secondary processing. At our factories, we carry out consolidated production from the yarn, which enable us to maintain stable quality, produce in small lots, and deliver in a short space of time. In addition, at our overseas production bases, we produce high grade products of Japanese quality, and we are also able to offer mass production.
Waistband is mainly used to go around the inside of the waist of men’s slacks, and is also referred to as “waist lining” and “rag concealer.” It was originally used to conceal seam margins and cut edges on the insides of slacks, but it can also be used for functions such as preventing shirts from coming out and improving comfort. Recently, a lot of attention has been focused on an invisible, fashion-conscious design, and waistband is also sometimes used in ladies’ pants and skirts.
Waistband is a made to order processed product, and we are able to undertake this processing in our factories in Japan, China, and elsewhere overseas. We are able to meet a wide range of needs with an abundance of fabrics, sizes, and processing variations. We offer everything from simple types to highly designed piping and stitched types, and types with added functionality such as tack processing and non-slip tape.
