Workwear

Corporate wear and workwear are long-distance runners when it comes to clothing. Usually professionally cared for, they must be able to withstand dozens of washing and cleaning cycles without looking like it. The tough daily work routine must not harm the fabrics or seams.

Leatherwear

Discreet, decorative or protective? As a second skin, leather poses very particular processing challenges.

Denim

A special material, sometimes in, sometimes out. Denim shirts, jackets and skirts come and go, but jeans remain a loyal companion in the fashion world. Depending on the spirit of the times, the material is sometimes dark, sometimes faded.

Our sewing threads keep up reliably, our range offers the right solution for all jeans fashions.

Garment dyeing

While items of clothing are usually made from pre-dyed fabrics, garment dyeing initially involves making up a large number of garments and dyeing them later, depending on trends and levels of demand. This increases flexibility in a dynamic market while minimising the risk of large stocks of individual colours remaining. To keep seam quality at a consistently high level, our sewing threads can be optimally processed and outstandingly well dyed in all fabrics.
