Ladies' trousers must offer more than just two legs and a waistband. As an important garment for everyday use, a woman’s trousers must be elegant, business-like or sporty, but above all they must fit her perfectly and give her the security she needs. New ultrafine materials and the huge variety of elastic fabrics pose a big challenge when it comes to sewing, and also for the sewing threads. Rustic cotton or corduroy fabrics need to be joined durably. From fine to coarse - the right thread comes from AMANN.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation

As a universal sewing thread for trousers we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging.

Depending on the fabric and the sewing conditions such as the stitch density and stitch type, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:

  • for closing seams in coarser fabrics sabaC 80, for the finest fabrics sabac 150
  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX 120
  • for decorative seams sabac in a wide range of tickets up to sabac 25
  • for the finest blindstitch seams Serafil 200/2
