MADEIRA’s Metallic Threads meet the highest requirements regarding the variety of colours, thread counts – and of course quality.

MADEIRA fully understands embroidery and decorative needs in the industry, which is why we offer such a glorious mix of colours and counts.

An Embroidery made with metallic threads is sophisticated, lavish and precious, which means a wide choice of threads is a necessity.  MADEIRA offers this choice.

Because they are more difficult to work with than the Viscose or Polyester threads, metallic threads must also be of perfect quality to ensure optimum use on machines.  MADEIRA guarantees this quality.

Unique and worldwide, MADEIRA offers seven different thread counts and types.  From the finest metallic thread to heavy No. 15 and from smooth to textured yarn.

MADEIRA’s metallics are in a wide variety of Golds, Silvers and precious metals, dazzling Jewel and iridescent tones, multicolours and lovely subtle elegant shades in seven different ranges!

Like all other MADEIRA threads, MADEIRA metallics can be used for embroidery and decorative stitching on anything from lingerie and sports fashion through to jeans, coats, shoes and homewares.  Not only this, one of MADEIRA’s special Metallics can even be chlorine and stone washed.  MADEIRA can be relied upon for quality, range and end use.

Special consideration:
For embroideries onto leather or plastic materials it is necessary to use metallic embroidery threads, which are resistant to oxidation caused by tannic acid or aggressive chemicals.
