They are often used in outdoor products since the fibers are inherently able to resist UV rays. Again, if we don’t have the specific size you’re looking for, we can order it for you.

Commercial leather sewing thread is typically used on a walking foot machine with a high grade industrial 110/16 to 110/18 needle. The right thread for interior applications will be a bonded nylon. The tex size will depend on the thickness of the leather you are using. The resin bonding agent found in the manufacturing process of the bonded nylon helped reduce friction in sewing. This allows for faster and smoother stitching during your production. We do not recommend waxed or common threads for leather sewing. However when it comes to outdoor leather products like a bike seat or the dashboard of a car which sees a lot of sunlight, you’ll want a polyester thread. The polyester fibers have better resistance to UV rays. A heavier thickness is strong enough to sew through several layers of additional material.
