Where Can I Buy Bias Binding In South Africa

What is a Bias Binding?

Bias tape or bias binding is a narrow strip of fabric, typically plain weave, cut on the bias. As the weave of fabric is at a 45-degree angle, the resulting fabric strip is stretchier than a strip cut on the grain.

The strip also has a better drape and conforms to curves better than fabric cut on the grain.
