Electricians, joiners or bakers – they all need durable, heavy-duty work clothing that is suited to their specific job. At the same time, the colour indicates which profession or trade they belong to. Special pockets or straps for hammers or yardsticks have to accommodate the tools safely and cope with frequent use. High abrasion resistance is one of the relevant properties needed by sewing threads, along with washability and tensile strength. AMANN sewing threads have all of this.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for workwear we recommend sabac 80 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging.

Depending on the stress they undergo in use, 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 higher stress in use sabac 50 for closing seams
  • alternatively, Rasant for closing and topstitch seams in the corresponding tickets
  • for topstitch seams sabac in a wide range of tickets 
  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX 80
  • for embroidering logos ISACORD, ISAMET 40 and Serafil 200/2
