For two decades, PT Winchester has been an all-inclusive supplier of textile components for the heavy textile industry.

Our textile components are a regular necessity for sectors such as the military, equestrian, leisure, travel, insulation, upholstery and more.
The array of different types of items we have in stock at PT Winchester is outstanding. There is cotton webbing, binding tapes, Keder, shock cord and assemblies, sewing threads, shoulder pads, PVC window material, woven elastic, tarpaulins, zips, load restraint straps, anti-fray netting, and banner webbing. Additionally, as an official distributor of Velcro in the UK, we also supply Velcro products. We are also an official supplier of Cousin Trestec ropes too.

We have an array of products available through our online store, however if there is something else you require which isn’t there our friendly team will be happy to discuss further.

Banner Webbing and Anti-Fray Netting

PT Winchester stocks banner webbing and anti-fray netting. These are two ranges that are specially designed for materials like flags and banners which have to battle against the outdoor elements.
Our anti-fray netting protects flags from the whiplash they get from wind. Instead of the flag’s hem, this special netting takes the impact of the wind’s force. Particularly for flag’s that are constantly flying, anti-fray netting is always used. Similarly, banner webbing is built into the hem of large, outdoor banners so that there is maximum durability against wind.

Binding Tapes

Our selection of binding tapes consists of three different types. We have texturised polyester edge binding tape. This is available in four different widths: 38mm, 34mm, 32mm, and 25mm. Also available in these sizes is general purpose woven cotton tapes. We also stock 500m rolls of nylon herringbone lacing at 13mm wide.
Our polyester binding tape, woven cotton tape, and nylon herringbone lacing all come in an assortment of colours.
More information about our binding tapes can be found on our website. Here you will find details about each product within this range together with images.


PT Winchester has a comprehensive assortment of cord types to choose from. These are ideal for a whole variety of applications.
Braided polyester – This is frequently used for outdoor applications like sails, marquees, and tents due to its resistance to UV.
Pre-shrunk braided polyester – This cord is prevalent in the manufacture of marquees. Potential shrinking is reduced as the cord has already been heat-treated.
Braided nylon – Hardwearing braided nylon is often used for hanging picture frames as well as light pulls and cords for blinds.
Lacing cord – This cord can be found in banner hanging, draw strings, and Dutch lacing.
Blind cord – Canopies, curtains, and blinds usually use nylon braided cord.
Cotton braid – Cotton braid is more suited to higher temperatures; more so than thermoplastic synthetics.
Within our extensive range of cords we also stock spun polyester braid, Kevlar cord, nomex cord, jute sash, and braided polypropylene. Please visit the PT Winchester website for more details about these products.

Cotton Webbing

As with the rest of our textile components which are used in a multitude different sectors, PT Winchester’s stock of cotton webbing is no exception.
This material is incorporated into items such as camera cases, hand luggage, backpacks, furniture and more.
We have several sizes available in our cotton webbing and many colour choices: beige, dark and light brown, khaki, and sand. Sizes range from 25mm to 50mm.

Cutting Products

Cutting products for heavy textiles will greatly determine the finish quality of a product. Tools for cutting textiles that are low in quality can produce frayed edges, unravelling, and ultimately a prolonged and difficult manufacturing stage.
As a specialist in the supply of textile components and related products, PT Winchester stocks a selection of textile cutting tools. We have different sizes of rope cutters and hot knives. Within our range there are also handheld rope cutters.

Keder is a reinforcement material that is frequently used in the textile industry to produce tarpaulins, awnings, tents, and other similar products that require strength and flexibility. Keder has these important characteristics due to the smooth connection it creates between materials such as fabric and plastic.

As an official UK distributor for Cousin Trestec ropes, we are able to boast outstanding qualities in the variety of these products here at PT Winchester.
Polyester, nylon, and polypropylene are amongst our most popular kinds.
Hemp-style polypropylene rope maintains a traditional appearance to look like natural rope. The advantage of this is that it floats, and is also resistant to rotting and UV; very popular qualities for uses like mooring, gardening, and constructing marquees.
Both nylon rope and polyester rope are highly suitable for yachting, sailing, and waterside related applications. They are both flexible and often used in anchoring and mooring.
Polyester rope extends these ‘seaside’ qualities further with resistance to water absorption, UV, chemicals, and salty atmospheres.

Shock Cord

This is an elasticated cord which is concealed in polypropylene or polyester. This covering provides improved resistance to heat and UV.
Shock cord is most prominently used in the leisure and sporting industries. You will come across this cord in climbing, hiking, camping, sailing, and of course bungee jumping.
