Edging tape, also known as facing tape or bias tape, is a narrow strip of fabric that is sewn around the edges of pieces of fabric to neaten or protect them. Unlike bias tape, which is cut at an angle and folded, binding tape is cut from a straight strip of fabric and folded.
Edging tapes are available in different colours, widths and materials and can be made of cotton, satin, silk or polyester. They are often used to reinforce or decorate the edges of garments, blankets, cushion covers, tablecloths and other textiles. The binding tape is placed around the edges of the fabric and pinned or sewn to create a neat, professional Edge.
