Certified quality

The production of our sewing threads and the quality of the materials we use comply with strict European regulations. Our production is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. A&E Gütermann voluntarily undertakes to be regularly audited and evaluated by independent external certification bodies.


With its water-repellent protective finish, Mara WA provides the optimum basis for tight seams. The water-repellent effect of the sewing thread is proven by the so-called methylene blue test. The capillary/wicking effect is used to measure the water-repellent effect of the specially finished thread. Mara WA shows no rising after two hours compared to the non-water repellent alternative.
