Abstract : An improved tear webbing is fabricated of two woven straps offering gradually increasing resistance to tearing of the pile yarn woven between the straps to assure that sequential tearing of only the pile ends will occur. It also provides the technique of snubbing or binding the pile yarn in place around each adjacent weft picks of the webbing so that the pile yarn will tear and discourage slipping that may otherwise cause failure of the straps.
