Innovation and Technology in Sewing Threads


Guetermann Gütermann has been manufacturing high quality sewing threads for perfect seams for over 150 years. All Gütermann Mara sewing threads are produced in a new and exclusive technology, the Micro Core Technology. The whole range is highly engineered and available in 700 standard colours and 12 different counts, from the finest Mara 220 to Mara 15-11-8 for any decorative seams on leather goods.

Gütermann also offers sewing solutions for garment dyeing as well as a recycled sewing thread range called Mara rPET, which is made of 100 % recycled polyester and used for environment-friendly production in the leather industry.

Gütermann offers a complete range of high tenacity sewing threads made of 100% continuous filament polyester, Gütermann Tera, which is suitable for any application in the footwear industry. These products are available in several counts, from the thickest No. 5 to the finest No. 80 to meet all requirements. Excellent breaking strength and abrasion resistance, good sewability as well as the brightness of these threads allow their application in any segment.

The Gütermann offer for the footwear industry is completed by the polyamide threads Zwilon and Zwibond, for durable shoe seams, in particular in the sports sector.

Fashion requires  more and more shades also for shoes – for this reason Gütermann enlarged its color range offering a wide shade card. To make colour matching easier, Gütermann created a new display which helps choosing the right colour match.

All this is guaranteed by the very well known quality of a manufacturer who chose to keep on producing in Europe with European raw materials and respecting European regulations in terms of quality management, suppliers’ selection, environmental care and respect for human health.
