What is Bias Binding?

Bias binding, also known as bias tape, is a narrow strip of fabric cut on the diagonal, or 45°, to the lengthwise grain of the fabric. This is known as the bias and is where the most amount of stretch happens in fabric. It creates a ‘flexible’ strip that allows the fabric to be applied to curves more easily without creating puckers or tucks. It comes as a single fold format, where the raw edges are folded in towards the centre of the tape, or double fold, where it is folded a second time at the centre length, so the single folds are encased inside the tape.

Bias can range in width from 6mm (1/4”) to approximately 5cm (2”) depending on what you wish to use it for.
