OUTDOOR

Outdoor textiles such as tents, marquees or sails are sun, rain, dirt and humidity proof. This puts quite a strain on seams and stitching. With top quality sewing threads from A&E Gütermann you are always on the safe side because our threads are designed to withstand the toughest conditions.
 

tent outdoor sewing thread in the application
The importance of the thread used for a tent first becomes clear when the wind unleashes its full potential and the sun shines brightly. These particularly harsh outdoor conditions can attack the weakest points in a tent. A&E Gütermann has special sewing threads to counter these attacks and impress the consumer with the high level of resistance and resilience of the stitching.
