Textiles – they are all around us.  Maybe you’ve never heard that specific term being used but the clothing you are currently wearing, the canopy you sit under while enjoying a nice dinner outside by the river, the curtains hanging in your living room, the cloth interior seats in your car, protective clothing… they are all a part of the textile industry. 

So, what exactly is it?  A textile is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibers, weaved or knitted together.  Textiles are made from many materials including animal, plant, mineral and synthetic – all of which are made in various strengths and degrees of durability, depending on the industry the material is serving.  For example, fabric is a huge part of our lives and without it, we wouldn’t have our basic, necessary items that we depend on day in and day out. 

The extensive use of paper cores in the textile industry is a driving factor in the growing demand for more products to be produced. At Yazoo, we recognize just how important our process is in the textile industry as material will need to be wound onto a core.  Having the correct tools for your respective jobs is imperative to the success of your end-product and bottom line.  Our 100% recycled paper cores are a key component when it comes to rewinding material, which is a process that demands a consistent outside diameter to ensure the material winds evenly.  In our manufacturing process, we produce paper cores with the strength and consistency that provides the best ROI in your converting operations.  Yazoo’s paper cores are designed to fit your specifications for maximum strength to ensure optimum performance, reduce downtime and increase productivity.

We offer a wide variety of value-added, custom capabilities such as colored parchments, embossed outer wraps and core notching (just to name a few) that many of our customers in the textile industry are utilizing; which is helping them stay ahead of their competition. We also offer 110+ sizes of paper cores in-stock and ready to ship the same day if the order is placed by 4pm EST. Our speed to market and high-quality products are just two of the many reasons why we remain the industry leader for paper tubes and cores.

In a world where we can have basically (almost) anything we want at our fingertips, we soon forget the process it takes to make a product. A product cannot amount to anything great until it has its starting point.  In the converting industry, that starting point is a core.

Converting is the essential part of the process of taking raw materials and creating a finished product. This kind of process is crucial for industries specializing in adhesives, tapes, labels, film, fabric, flexible packaging, etc.  Converting cores are manufactured with each application in mind.  The cores must maintain their durability during and after the process of adding a product on to them.  Yazoo’s paper cores are manufactured from plies of paper of various thicknesses to attain the customer’s strength and performance specifications.

Slitting and rewinding is a common process that Converters use in their operations. A machine takes a product, unwinds the material through a series of blades that slits the material into smaller widths then rewinds it onto a new roll.  Our 100% recycled paper cores have the strength and consistency converting companies require to optimize their operations.  As speed increases on rewinding machines, Yazoo’s cores are designed to protect their inside diameter and core length, greatly reducing cost from waste. Custom capabilities such as covers, liners, embossing, etc. add unique value to a customer’s manufacturing process, without damaging the product.

The next time you purchase something, take a few minutes to reflect on the processes it took to manufacture the product.  You might just appreciate it even more!
