This exciting group of technical textiles is truly multifunctional.
Using Knitting, Weaving or Braiding we can engineer your perfect tubular fabric.
Single Tubes, Multiple Tubes & Bifurcated tubes are all possible.
Relevant Case Studies
PVA Fishing Mesh
Our client recognised an inherent problem with an established product in the market. The product, a tubular fabric made using PVA yarn to hold bait for fishing was regularly unravelling in the hands of anglers, thus creating a lot of waste material and negative feedback from anglers.

Develop your Textile Solution with Culzean:
Will your fabric benefit from surface treatments?
- Non-slip silicone
- Anti bacterial
Many options are possible.
The surface of the tubular fabric can be engineered for your specific requirements.
Solid surface, diamond net surface, square net surface... the choice is yours!
Many fabric thicknesses are possible.
Does your application need a tubular fabric that is easy or difficult to stretch?
Do you require stretch in the hoop of the tube, or along its length?
Elasticity can be engineered to suit your requirements.
Could your tubular fabric benefit from additional features?
- Multiple tubes together or bifurcated tubes.
- Holes in specific areas
- Cut lines
- Re-enforcement zones
- Improved fray resistance
- Changing pattern, e.g. from a tube to a tape
Do you require small or large diameter tubes?
It is possible to make our tubular fabrics from as little as a few millimetres in diameter to many metres in diameter.
Breathability / Porosity
Does you application require a breathable or porous tube?
We can engineer the fabric to your requirements.
What fibres are most beneficial for your application?
- Glass fibre
Many other fibres are possible. It is even possible to 'strategically' place the fibres within the structure.
Does you application need a tubular fabric that easily conforms to difficult shapes?
Or, do you require a rigid tube with no drape?
