Custom woven wristbands have been popular on the European festival circuit for a while. They are starting to be used at US festivals now, including both Bonnaroo and Coachella recently.
Woven wristbands (often referred to as cloth wristbands, fabric wristbands or embroidered wristbands) are considered highly secure and virtually non-transferable.
Each wristband comes with a self-locking, sliding plastic ring to prevent the wristband from being transferred from one patron to another. The self-locking slide is plastic, not metal. Therefore, expensive, cumbersome crimping tools are NOT required.
The wristbands are multicolor and can be custom designed to your specs.
