3/8″ Natural Cotton Tape – 250 yard spool


Made in the USA

This product works very well for making masks since it washes easier than elastic, provides a more snug fit and is biodegradable. The 3/8″ natural cotton tape works well for tying petticoats, aprons, and women’s pockets. At historic events, it’s very difficult to keep your hands clean, therefore the natural color works very well for working class aprons. Directions for securely sewing cotton tape on to a garment are found in The Lady’s Guide to Plain Sewing Book II. In 1783 in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London “WILLIAM HATCHMAN was indicted for feloniously stealing . . .  24 yards of cotton tape, value 4 s.”
