Re: [BKARTS] Synthetic Sewing Tape -Name and Source?

Perhaps it's Ramieband you're looking for, Cameron? Comes from Switzerland, I believe. We use it more than linen tapes for simple case bindings, mainly because it's so wonderfully thin. And yes, it does fray nicely. We get ours from BookMakers International, but I imagine it would be available through any bookbinding supply company.

I recently watched a video of Sun Evrard doing a simplified binding, using
a synthetic tape. It was a thin, a bit rigid, an frayed very easily. Does
anyone know the name of this produce and a source?
