Lederjacke, Ledermantel

Jacket & coat.


Jackets and coats made of leather often have many seams. The reason for this is not aesthetics only. Expensive leathers are often made of small hides and exotic leather of very small hides which must be sewn together before making a garment. On the other hand dominant decorative seams – so called saddler seams – are popular too. When using extremely thin leather, the stitch holes must not be visible. Serafil and sabaC meet these very specific requirements of leather processing.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

Our standard sewing thread recommendation for jackets and coats made of leather is Serafil 60.
Depending on the desired look, leather type and sewing conditions other qualities from the AMANN range can be chosen such as:
