An electrical connector is formed from a lamina of elastomeric material having conductive tracks on one surface by folding the lamina and bonding opposed lamina portions together. The conductive tracks extend around the fold between contact portions on opposite surfaces of the connector. Suitably the lamina is of thermoplastic material so that bonding is by fusion and the conductive tracks may be flush with the connector surfaces. The connector is formed in a U-shaped nest under pressure and the lamina is formed about a core of elastomeric material.
