Promoting exceptional Quality through maintaining South African National Standards
Supreme quality has been the backbone of our success for more than 50 years. Therefore it prides us to have the SABS mark of approval on our products as confirmation of our commitment to high quality standards in thread manufacturing.
As the national standardisation institution in South Africa, the SABS is mandated to develop and maintain South African National Standards (SANS) and promote quality in connection with commodities, products and services.
All our locally manufactured threads bear the SABS 1362 stamp of approval and we adhere to strict specifications to ensure that no carcinogenic or harmful chemicals are used during the production of our products.

Being committed to deliver high quality product and exceptional service with a strong customer focus, we have implemented ISO9001 systems in our sewing thread factory.
ISO9001 accreditation entails following internationally recognised quality management principles and best practice methodology. This includes regular staff training to continuously improve and streamline our processes, and adhering to strict safety systems. Having the right systems in place enables us to produce the best quality products at the best price, to exceed your expectations.
The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 —Textile Certification for Safety, Compliance, and Peace of Mind
Sewing thread is used in clothing, furniture and other items that come into contact with the skin, so it is important to ensure that the thread used in these items contains no harmful substances.
To give our customers complete peace of mind, all our imported embroidery- and specialist threads are OEKO-TEX® certified, which means the materials that are used in the production of these sewing threads are submitted for testing with the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 system.
OEKO-TEX is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production and the label is there to reassure consumers that the materials contain no harmful substances and that they have been sustainably produced in accordance with OEKO-TEX® guidelines.
