Tila beads are two-holed beads nicknamed Tila. These beads are a product of Miyuki. With two holes these beads are great for doing ladder stitch. Since ladder stitch requires passing of thread several times into the beads’ hole Tila beads gives the thread enough room to pass several times.
Tila beads are also flat and so they are great for making leather wrapped bracelet like Chan Lu bracelets.
