Rohkonfektion Hose



Garment Dyeing has a large share in trouser production. Customers appreciate the distinct look. Garment dyed trousers become frequently worn favourites which must be specifically robust and durable. This is a particular challenge for sewing threads which must provide perfect dyeability and at the same time sufficient strength and sewability.
The sewing threads AMANN supplies for Garment Dyeing meet these requirements.


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.
