Bobbinet tulles are made of natural fibers like silk, cotton, polyamide and polyester. The real bobbinet tulle is a woven fabric, although it resembles in its hexagonal hole shape to a knitted fabric. Its dimensional stability is incomparable.

The so-called real, woven bobbinet tulles are open and reticular textile fabrics consisting of warp and weft. The weft threads are looped diagonally around the vertical warp threads - this creates a hexagonal, honeycomb-shaped "hole".

The production of bobbinet tulles is entirely at the swisstulle plc in the UK, the largest and oldest factory in the world in this specialty.
