Shoes & Accessories

Application

Leather is one of the most popular materials, not just because of its enduring nature. Processed into bags, shoes, belts or gloves, it becomes a fashionable accessory that gives outfits that final touch. Which makes the demands placed on the look and quality of refined shoes and leather goods all the greater. High-quality synthetic materials such as mesh, fabrics, films, sisal and other woven materials are a suitable substitute for leather nowadays in terms of both quality and function. Seams often characterise the look and give the items made of either real or faux leather their eye-catching design. Whatever shape, colour or function they are used for – our quality sewing threads fulfil every wish.

Shoes

At every stage of life, shoes are our daily companions. They must withstand all kinds of weather as well as the mechanical load of walking. Nowadays, high-tech concepts are often used for optimal support and shock absorption of the foot in shoes, and attention is often also paid to water-repellent properties. Decisively involved in design, stability and durability, our sewing threads ensure the perfect seam.
