Frequently Asked Questions About Bag Making Thread

What thread can I use for sewing leather or vinyl?

Leather and vinyl sewing requires a strong, abrasion-resistant thread that's able to withstand high friction and create durable seams. Cotton threads should generally be avoided because they can be prone to fraying and breakage under such high stress. Bonded polyester or nylon threads like WAWAK Optipop or Amann Strongbond are excellent options; they're made of strong, flexible materials and feature a protective coating that strengthens the thread and prevents abrasion. Multifilament polyester threads like Gutermann Tera are also ideal, as their multifilament construction makes them highly flexible, durable, and abrasion-resistant.


What thread weight should I use for sewing leather?

Tex 60-80 threads are commonly used for topstitching leather on items like wallets, purses, and bags, but the optimal thread weight is dependent on your specific material. Choose a heavier thread weight for thicker or harder materials and a bolder topstitch appearance or a lighter thread for thinner, more flexible materials and a more subtle topstitch appearance.
