Braided products are one group with a long history at JUMBO. Braiding is a production method in which several strands of synthetic and/or natural threads are regularly interwoven. Braiding differs from weaving in that the threads are not interwoven at right angles to each other but crossed over.
Mechanical production of braiding began back in the 1930s at JUMBO. While still operating under the name of “Spezialfabrik gummielastischer Kordeln und Litzen”, the company started up its first industrial braiding machines for the production of elastic articles at its factory in Wuppertal.
