Tubular Fabrics

This exciting group of technical textiles is truly multifunctional.

Using Knitting, Weaving or Braiding we can engineer your perfect tubular fabric.

Single Tubes, Multiple Tubes & Bifurcated tubes are all possible.

Relevant Case Studies

PVA Fishing Mesh

Our client recognised an inherent problem with an established product in the market. The product, a tubular fabric made using PVA yarn to hold bait for fishing was regularly unravelling in the hands of anglers, thus creating a lot of waste material and negative feedback from anglers.
