What is a braiding?

A braiding is a textile product, whose threads are not crossed vertically and horizontally like it is in fabrics, but the threads run obliquely to the edges of the product. A braiding therefore consists of a certain amount of threads that part of them goes from the upper left to the lower right through the braiding and the other part goes from the upper right to the lower left.

GBraidings are used in countless areas in life and often they are invisible. To mention a few examples:
Shoelaces, cords of parkas, wicks, elastic cords, belts, ropes, laundry lines, sewing threads especially those for medical purposes, medical catheters, seals, composite parts for the industry and many more.

The field of application of braidings is wide-ranging that it is nearly impossible to record all of them.
