As part of our commitment to providing quality products, we only sell nylon webbing that is manufactured in the United States. This ensures that all nylon webbing is manufactured to the highest performance and safety standards.
For flat nylon webbing, threads are woven together on a loom much like any other textile. For tubular nylon webbing, the webbing is crafted into a flat tube. The specific pattern can be changed to alter the aesthetic properties or durability of the nylon webbing straps.
