Jeansrock, Jeanshose

Trousers & skirts.


A particular challenge connects heavy multilaying fabrics. The same applies for modern denim variations with elastane content. For an authentic impression, saddler's stitches and other decorative seams are a must. The continuous success of jeans is not based on fine smooth seams, but on special decorative and finishing effects. AMANN sewing threads can guarantee all this for a jeans' lifetime.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

Our standard sewing thread recommendation for jeans is sabac 80 for closing seams in combination with sabac 30 for decorative and topstiching seams. The classical thread for serging seams is sabac 120.
Depending on the desired look, the denim fabric and the sewing conditions such as stitch density and stitch type other qualities from the AMANN range may be chosen:

  • sabac 50 for closing seams in coarser fabrics, sabac 100 for finer denim fabrics 
  • alternatively, Rasant for closing seams in corresponding tickets
  • sabac, Rasant or Serafil for decorative and topstitching seams in a wide range of tickets
  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX
