Waistband Interlinings

Nonwoven interlinings play an important role in the overall fit and appearance of both men’s and women's clothing. H&V’s waistband interlinings provide the nonwoven canvas that makes garments ranging from blue jeans to casual slacks to finely tailored suits more comfortable and durable.

  • Our high-stability waistbands have less than 2% shrinkage after repeated laundering
  • Unlike most nonwovens,  H&V’s products retain most of their pre-wash stiffness
  • Our stretch products exhibit 99% recovery when stretched as much as 120% of their original MD length 

Developed to retain the shape and fit of a garment, our waistband interlinings provide stability and stretch in comfort fit slacks for both men and women. When comfort is key, H&V’s nonwoven waistband fabrics are a cost-effective choice to replace expensive woven, knit, and elastic materials.   

  • Stretch and recovery are built into our nonwovens using H&V’s proprietary process that does not require non-breathable film, allowing stretch up to 120% in the machine direction with very little “necking.”
  • Fusible adhesives are an important part of today’s garment construction and can be supplied on any of our stable or stretch waistband nonwovens.
