ETC Supplies

Did you know that the backings sold by ETC Supplies are unique and especially manufactured for us by Europe’s leading non-woven factories to Oeko-Tex standards. These are not available from our competitors.

With over 30 years’ experience in research and development, our embroidery backings are far superior to our competitors’ products. The binders we use are all safe and Formaldehyde free. The fibres we use are the highest grade available. Don’t be fooled into thinking that the products our competitors supply are the same.

Our competitors source their embroidery backings from companies such as BFF, Lantor and Freudenberg. To compete with these products, we offer economy range embroidery backings.
