Thread

We use corespun thread for all the exterior parts of our bags and upholstery thread for the interior.

Corespun threads, sometimes referred “pcore” or “polycore” or “cottoncore”, are made by wrapping a cotton wrapper around a continuous filament bundle of polyester fibres during spinning, and then plying these yarns into a sewing thread. The continuous filament polyester core makes up approximately 60% of the thread construction.

This core contributes to:

• Higher strength per size (higher tenacity)

• Greater uniformity in size, strength and other physical characteristics

• A higher initial modulus or resistance to stretching contributing to better loop formation and reduced seam puckering. • Better ply security – fewer unravel type thread breaks • Superior abrasion resistance & durability

The wrapper gives the thread a fibrous surface that contributes to:

• A softer “hand” or feel than a 100% continuous filament threads

• A matte finish stitch appearance similar to a spun thread construction

• Superior frictional characteristics compared to a continuous filament threads •
