Abstract (en)

An elastic band obtained by continuous weaving consists of an alternation of single segments (1) and double segments where the band splits into two parallel strips (2, 2') which then unite again in the following single segment (1). This band when used in the assembly of clothing items, particularly underwear, allows to reduce the number of members and therefore the number of seams, resulting in time and labour savings and greater structural continuity of the item. <IMAGE>
