DaVarg employs a distinct type of thread for its handcrafted saddle stitches, differentiating them from threads used in machine stitching. As these threads crisscross the layers of leather in a single, continuous line, they exhibit specific characteristics.
The primary distinction lies in the thickness of the thread. Saddle stitching permits the use of significantly thicker threads, leading us to utilize threads with increased thickness. The majority of stitches are executed with 0.8mm threads, while accent stitching employs threads with a thickness of 0.5mm.
For our saddle stitching, we employ bonded thread. Bonding is a meticulous process that binds thread fibers together, mitigating issues such as splitting or fraying. This method also ensures a consistent fiber structure throughout the thread's lifespan, contributing to its exceptional thickness.
Furthermore, we prioritize color fastness in the threads we utilize, ensuring that they retain their color integrity over time and through regular use. The specific colors chosen for DaVarg articles are thoughtfully selected with this durability in mind. This meticulous approach to thread selection and craftsmanship underscores our commitment to delivering artciles of superior quality and longevity.
