However, piping cord made from different material would have different application. For example, pillow and garment manufacturers usually choose nylon or polyester piping cord because of their products’ softness. But leather handbag designers would still choose leather piping cord to reach the goal of uniformity of the whole final bag.

Because of its feature of waterproof, hard and strong, TPU piping cord has better performance on shaping. Thus, TPU piping cord is generally used for tend, saddlery, fishing gear and other outdoor products. Moreover, more and more fashion bag is trying to use TPU piping cord to shape the bag and increase its fashion factor.
