Webbings and tapes are narrow, woven or knitted strips of fabric that are commonly used for various purposes. They are typically made from durable materials such as nylon, polyester, cotton, or a combination of these fibers. Here’s an overview of webbings and tapes and their applications:


Webbings are flat, woven strips of fabric that are known for their strength and durability. They are available in different widths, thicknesses, and designs to suit specific applications. Some common characteristics of webbings include:

  • Strength and Load-Bearing: Webbings are designed to have high tensile strength, making them suitable for applications where strong and reliable support is required. They can withstand heavy loads and provide stability.
  • Versatility: Webbings are versatile and find application in various industries. They are used in products such as bags, backpacks, belts, harnesses, safety equipment, pet collars and leashes, military gear, automotive seat belts, and more.
  • Durability: Webbings are typically made from materials that are resistant to abrasion, UV rays, moisture, and general wear and tear. This makes them suitable for outdoor and rugged environments.
  • Webbing Patterns: Webbings can come in different patterns, including plain, herringbone, twill, and others. The pattern can affect the appearance, texture, and functionality of the webbing.

John Howard Company is proud to be a leading supplier of webbings for product manufacturers and the US Military.

Nylon webbing offers a wide range of benefits, which contribute to its popularity in various applications:

  1. Strength and Durability: Nylon webbing is known for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, making it highly durable and capable of withstanding heavy loads and rugged conditions. It resists abrasion, tearing, and stretching, ensuring longevity in use.
  2. Versatility: Nylon webbing is available in different widths, thicknesses, and weave patterns, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. It can be used in load-bearing equipment, straps, belts, harnesses, pet collars, bags, and other products.
  3. Weather Resistance: Nylon webbing is resistant to moisture, mildew, rot, and many chemicals, making it suitable for outdoor and marine applications. It can withstand exposure to UV rays without significant degradation, making it suitable for extended outdoor use.
  4. Flexibility and Ease of Handling: Nylon webbing is flexible and easy to handle, allowing it to conform to various shapes and contours. It can be sewn, welded, or heat-sealed to create secure attachments and closures.
  5. Lightweight: Despite its strength, nylon webbing is lightweight, which is advantageous in applications where weight is a concern, such as hiking gear, backpacks, and outdoor equipment.
  6. Quick-Drying: Nylon webbing dries quickly when wet, reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth and making it suitable for water-related activities and applications.
  7. Colorfastness: Nylon webbing is available in a wide range of colors, and it maintains its color vibrancy over time, even with exposure to sunlight and washing.
  8. Cost-Effectiveness: Nylon webbing is relatively inexpensive compared to other materials like polyester or natural fibers, making it a cost-effective choice for many applications.
  9. Safety: Nylon webbing is resistant to fraying and has a smooth texture, reducing the risk of abrasion and irritation when in contact with skin. It is also non-conductive, making it safe for use in electrical and high-voltage applications.

Overall, the benefits of nylon webbing make it a versatile and reliable choice for a wide range of applications across industries such as outdoor recreation, military and tactical gear, automotive, marine, and more.  John Howard Company is a top supplier of nylon webbing to manufacturers across the US.

Tapes are similar to webbings but are typically thinner and more flexible. They are commonly used for binding, edging, reinforcing, and attaching purposes. Some key features of tapes include:

  • Flexibility: Tapes are often thinner and more pliable than webbings, allowing them to conform to various shapes and surfaces more easily. This makes them suitable for applications that require flexibility and maneuverability.
  • Binding and Edging: Tapes are commonly used for binding and finishing edges of fabrics, garments, and textiles. They provide reinforcement and a neat, finished appearance.
  • Seam Reinforcement: Tapes can be used to reinforce seams in garments or other fabric-based products. They add strength to the seam and prevent it from unraveling or tearing under stress.
  • Adhesive Backing: Some tapes may have adhesive backing, allowing them to be easily attached to surfaces. This adhesive feature is useful for temporary or permanent bonding applications.

Tapes and webbings are essential components in numerous industries, including fashion and apparel, outdoor gear, automotive, industrial, military, and more. Their strength, durability, and versatility make them valuable for various applications that require reliable and sturdy materials.

John Howard Company is proud to be a leading supplier of webbings and tapes to product manufacturers and the U.S. military.
