Cotton tape tape or ‘beta’ tape is one of the most commonly used haberdashery tapes. It’s a very simple looking tape that doesn’t show its selvedges, although it does have them, as do all our woven fabric tapes.

It’s available in various widths from 6 mm to 38 mm. and is mainly ordered in three basic colours: black, white and beige. However, the best-selling widths of 14 mm and 28 mm are also available in a palette of 25 colours.
This item is sold on a roll or a 100-metre reel, depending on the width, and the 14 mm width is also available in a 20-metre crystal reel. The wide range of colours available in this last format makes it a popular choice, with most of the demand coming from the haberdashery industry.
This tape is 100% cotton. We guarantee maximum washing at 30º and low-temperature ironing at 110ºC.
The classic or beta tape has infinite uses. One of its first was in footwear, to make that much-loved summer shoe, the espadrille. You’ll also find it in many kitchenware products like aprons and napkins, and it’s widely used to manufacture work clothes,overalls, hospital gowns and other medical supplies.
