The outstanding characteristics of the top quality cotton embroidery thread COTONA are significantly affected by the perfect choice of its raw material. We therefore only utilize premium extra-long staple 100 % Egyptian Giza cotton and manufacture it to a top class embroidery thread, using the most modern production processes.
The special finishing process of mercerizing the cotton thread imparts the noble character to COTONA and emphasizes the high quality of the precious natural product cotton. A smooth finish and perfect sew ability are distinguishing features of Cotona as well as its high tensile strength, consistent sheen and pleasant and comfortable wear ability.
