There are bags that are used as a means of carrying all sorts of important and useful items, and then there are It pieces – classy, expensive and manufactured with great care. The finest, highly sensitive leather, exotic leathers such as snake, ostrich or crocodile skin, or all of these used in embossing and printing on leather and synthetic materials: the sewing threads used have to bring everything together durably and in a way that is visually attractive. Decorative seams are accented with braided threads; welts and piping are attached and metallic fastenings are applied reliably, not just in black or brown, but in all the colours of the rainbow. AMANN sewing and embroidery threads live up to these wide-ranging performance requirements.




AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread recommendation for leather bags we recommend Serafil in a selection of tickets matched to the seam position and the material. 

Depending on the individual demands in use and the sewing conditions, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:

  • ONYX in the corresponding range of tickets
  • ISACORD and ISAMET for decorative embroidery
