Sewing thread recommendations for formal shoes

As most of these shoes are produced using high speed modern machines, the manufacturers need to ensure high production efficiencies along with high product quality.

Coats provide a wide range of sewing threads that minimise needle breakage, skipped stitches and thread breakage whilst maximising your product quality and machine efficiency.
