Tiger Thread


This thread, manufactured by Julius Koch in Germany, is accepted as being the very best for hand sewing leather. (Also known as Ritza 25)

It is a pre-waxed, flat, braided polyester thread. It's exceptionally strong, sews easily and lies flat providing a better look and more protection than your typical round threads.

  - Very light leather in gloves, wallets, etc is best sewn with 0.6mm thread and 004 needles

 - For light leather we have 0.8mm Tiger thread, use 002 or 1/0 needles

 - For the majority of jobs we recommend 1mm thread and 1/0 or 2/0 needles.

 - For thicker leather we recommend 1.4mm Tiger thread and 3/0 needles.

All samples are wrapped around coroplast to eliminate tangling, and sent through the mail.

See our listing for John James needles, a perfect complement for Tiger thread.
