Our non-fray elastic is the standard for luxury goods products. Non-fray elastic is a great choice for jewelry tags, or to adorn cosmetics, accessories, or garments. Our non-fray elastic is our neatest elastic option, although it is not fray-free. This is a must-have in any context where the attention of the consumer is focused on smaller high-end products.

Black Nonfray Elastic

Black nonfray elastic is one of the two colors we always have in stock. It is an excellent choice for so many different kinds of products, as black looks good next to just about everything. Unsurprisingly, black is by far the color most frequently specified.

White Nonfray Elastic

White nonfray elastic is the second of two colors we always have in stock. A natural choice for a similarly wide range of products as black, our white nonfray elastic is most often selected for cosmetics or body care products, as well as eyewear and other accessories.

Blue Nonfray Elastic

Our blue nonfray elastic is darker than a cobalt, and lighter than any shade of navy - a very stately option for any design. We find this color is most commonly used with backyard, outdoor, and pool products, as well as culinary items.

Gold Nonfray Elastic

Our gold nonfray elastic is a beautiful alternative to metallic elastic. While this will not reflect light in quite the same way as our metallic elastic, this particularly bright shade of gold is often used for holiday confectionery and other gifting products.

Gray nonfray elastic has a beautiful velvety sheen that catches the light, and which makes it a natural choice for more austere high-end packaging, such as for the design of fragrance packaging, or for a tag on a couture garment or accessory. We have also seen it used for coat check tags at fine establishments.

Brown Nonfray Elastic

Brown nonfray elastic has a huge range of applications, owing in part to the compatibility of varying neutral shades in print and packaging design. These range from the obvious connection with chocolate and confectionery to haberdashery, accessories, and all things sartorial.

COMPARISON:

Standard vs. Nonfray Elastic

The two images of finished, strung hang tags in the panels below show how the 'tails', or ends of the loops of string (specifically, the portion past the knot) will appear when finished. Our nonfray elastic is not completely free from fraying, but as you can see in the photo, it does so much less than our standard elastic.
