Making new travel clothes. These need to be tough. Like, Indiana Jones tough. Worn for days on messy trails, rough rivers, jagged mountains, etc. Last thing I want to worry about while hand washing in a river or chucking them in a washing machine is the edges falling apart.
So, what do you think is the toughest edge finish? Zig zag (doubtful)? Roll under (hate this)? A binding of some sort (really interested in this one)? What about taking the chemical route with No Fray or whatever it’s called (does it hold up to repeat washings/need reapplication?)
Throw your ideas out here, really interested in what others use and prefer.
Thank you Lincatz this is valuable advice.
