Sport, Swimwear



Swimwear makes high demands on seams and sewing threads. Elasticity, durability and softness are only the half of it; they also have to cope with UV radiation, chlorine and salt water. Also suntan lotion and oil must not damage the sewing threads. They must withstand all these challenges and retain their shape even when dripping wet. With sewing threads from AMANN, this is not a problem.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

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

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 highly elastic fabrics sabaFLEX 120
