Bartacking is a type of reinforcement stitching that is done using a Bartack machine. This technique is used by the fabric and textile industries to fortify stress points in clothing, sporting equipment, uniforms, and a host of other products. The Bartack sewing machine stitch is a tight zigzag pattern repeated perpendicularly over itself several times to make sewn products stronger, and resistant to tears or rips in the seams. Stress points that require bartacking are the areas of a garment where normal wear will cause strain on the seams or fasteners.
