Cotton bookbinding tape ~ unbleached ~ starched ~ 13mm (½") wide ~ sold by the metre
Cotton tape ~ starched ~13mm wide ~ priced per metre
Cotton tape such as this is used for bookbinding, and is available in other several widths ~ 10~16~19~25mm.
This listing is for starched tape that is 13mm wide. The stiffening of the starch allows the tape to be handled more easily, especially if sewing without a frame. This tape is slightly off-white or "natural". The prices are for collect. Please add appropriate postage to your basket before checking out ~ otherwise we may have to cancel and refund your order. A length of one or two metres will travel as a Letter ~ anything more will (by the time it is protectively wrapped) need to be a Large Letter.
Unstarched cotton tape ~ listed separately ~ has other uses such as ties for portfolios, or for bundling papers (as in a solicitor's office). All the tapes we sell are of acid-free quality.
