Rohkonfektion Jacke, Mantel

Jacket & coat.


Garment dyed jackets and coats are available in different shapes: blousons, parkas, windbreakers… The first priority is the look which must emphasise the garment's distinct used look. AMANN supplies sewing threads which fulfil all the requirements from dyeing properties to strength.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

Our standard sewing thread recommendation for Garment Dyeing is RasantGD in combination with Mercifil:

  • For seams visible from the outside we recommend Mercifil as needle thread and RasantGD as looper thread.
  • For inside seams, not visible from the outside, we recommend RasantGD as needle and looper thread.

The advantages of this combination are perfect dyed outside seams due to the use of a cotton thread as well as better seam strength and seam elongation due to the use of RasantGD in the looper. Please note, that only the cotton part of RasantGD is dyed during the Garment Dyeing process and the polyester core might shine through.

As a sustainable alternative for Mercifil, LIFECYCLE Cotton, a sewing thread made from organic cotton, can be used.
