Description

--only red left!

After years of trying all sorts of different threads I've finally settled on Tiger thread as the best available overall in terms of strength, colour choice, ease of use and appearance!

★ Please be sure to click the orange '+More' link to read the full description...

Tiger thread is a strong, braided polyester thread which is pre-waxed and is designed for hand sewing leather. It is made by the Julius Koch company which was founded in 1895 and is also known as Ritza.

Normally you have to buy it in bulk (500m or more) but here you can buy smaller lengths from me so that you can try it without committing to an expensive spool which is most likely more than you need!

If you are looking for good quality needles to use with this thread please see my other listing for John James Harness Needles.

FAQ:

** You will receive 20m of thread per purchase (please note the photo shows the 500m rolls this is not the amount you receive!) **

** the postage is expensive if you're outside the UK, this is down to what the Post Office charge as all international tracked shipping costs a lot **

** I do not sell full rolls **

** I have set the postage on additional purchases to zero so you can get multiple colours or more thread for the same amount of postage when bought at the same time **

** for the UK additional postage will be due if ordering over 120m or £25 value as this is the limit of the large letter stamp **

** this is for hand sewing leather, it's not suitable for sewing machines **

** I have removed the dark brown, this is so dark in reality it's almost black so I'd either just get black or order the mid brown instead **

** The 1mm is a the most general purpose and is a medium weight thread suitable for medium to large leather goods such as belts, bags, pouches, sheaths etc. **

** The 0.8mm is lighter and would be more suited to smaller goods. **

** Select colours are available in 0.6mm, this is a finer thread more suited to smaller goods such as watch straps or wallets and purses with small stitching **

    A very well thought out and executed set of instructions. The pattern is excellent, easy to follow with lots of guidance. There are recommendations on where to source materials and how to make adjustments to the pattern to make it work for the builder. I cannot recommend this strongly enough. Ian is probably the biggest single inspiration for me to take up and continue to work with leather.

    Perfect gift for my husband. Adding the personalisation made it extra special. Ian was very helpful and turnaround was very quick.
