At DILLING, we have woven elastic for a number of our products manufactured at our neighbor, ELAS, in Herning. The short distance makes it easy for us to keep in close contact while keeping an eye on the production. This also enables us to make individual adjustments, so the jacquard elastic always meets our customers’ needs. DILLING’s designer, Anna, recently visited ELAS, where she gathered many fascinating insights.
DILLING-elastic is made by the meter on huge machines. For our newest collection alone, we have had 5000 meters of Ökotex-certified, blue jacquard elastic – and note that this is only one color of many! Jacquard elastic refers to weaving a pattern or, in our case, a text into the elastic.
Before starting production, we always consider carefully how the final product should look. Should it be a classic model in black, or should the product be spruced up with a little color? Jacquard elastic provides an amazing opportunity to add details and experiment with classic designs.
A lot of science and technology goes into manufacturing high-quality elastic. After all, the elastic on something like a pair of trunks should be able to withstand frequent use and still enable a fit just as good as the first time they were worn!
