Shoes & Leather

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. Visually identical, high-quality synthetic materials such as 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.

Bags

Leather bags are a must for many people as a chic accessory or practical companion. As a means of transport and storage, they should be resilient and always look pretty at the same time. This makes carefully finished seams all the more important. Which is why we offer a wide range of sewing threads that serve this purpose without neglecting the outward aesthetics.

Suitcases & Luggage

Despite numerous functional materials, suitcases and luggage made of genuine leather are still very popular. Especially with weekenders and soft, smaller travel companions, leather is usually the first choice due to its look, feel and durability. In addition to appearance, tear and abrasion resistance play a decisive role, which determine the requirements for seams and threads. No matter which material you choose – our sewing threads not only meet your expectations but also withstand the harshest of conditions.
