CORDS, CRAFTING, AND CULINARY
We stock a variety of twines and cords, which are available in a range of colors and finishes. These strings work well when a clean and natural look is desired. These are most often selected for stringing tags for garments, grown-up beverages, and all sorts of handmade gift items. We also find that they are sometimes used for inspection tags and other industrial uses.
Black Waxed Cord
Our black waxed cord has a weathered look reminiscent of old canvas. It is our thinnest type of cord; this shade of the material is commonly used with accessories and garments for fashion labels on the higher end of the market.
Red Waxed Cord
Our red waxed cord is much like the string on envelopes for old inter-office correspondence, or on the envelopes we remember from our school days. The stiff profile, clearly visible in red, will lend a striking appearance to any hang tag design.
Black Glazed Cord
Our black glazed cord has a softer feel and lacks the stiffness of our other cords. This cord is actually a dark charcoal color, and will look particularly handsome on an item requiring a tag that is to be draped loosely around the product.
Polished cord is available in a natural off-white hue, and is often used for alteration and inspection tags, as well as other industrial and practical applications. It is a sturdy choice for any tag which is likely to be subjected to a lot of handling.
Our heavy weight bell cord is a dull tan that borders on gray, with a rough finish. Bell cord is an unfinished form of Pearlray string, lacking the soft, lustrous finish. Bell cord is often used on garments and alcohol, to convey a worn, rugged aesthetic.
Cotton Rope Cord
Our cotton rope cord is our most rope-like string option, with a distinctive braided profile. Available in a natural white, this string is an good choice for anything handmade, anything nautical, or anything made for playtime in surf and sand.
