People who are fond of sewing know well the difference that can exist between one thread and another. In fact, they do not use the same thread for basting as for sewing, since while the former is somewhat ephemeral and ends up being removed in a short time, in the latter case the quality of the thread will be decisive for how long it can last. or not work.
Painstaking, long-hour work can end up failing if the thread is of poor quality or not appropriate for the job. Many know what happens when you use a cheap thread and, at the first wash, it fades, spoiling the work, which may have taken hours and hours to do. Or when it breaks because it is not strong enough to withstand normal activity, such as what happens with the poor quality threads in the pockets of many store-bought pants.
If the choice of a good thread is important for any home sewing job, it is no less so in the industry. For industrial work there are very specific threads for each purpose. For this reason, having a good manufacturer of monofilament polypropylene thread to manufacture the most resistant canvases, for example, or a good flame retardant thread for motorcycle clothing, will make the products of the best quality.
Today there is such a diversity of threads on the market that only the most solvent manufacturers are capable of covering the vast majority of them and some are even so specific for a purpose and have to meet so many requirements that only one or two companies manufacture them and there are to go to them to get these products.
But in most cases, anyone can access all these professional threads if they have a good haberdashery or specialized store that is in charge of ordering them in the catalogue. This allows any work that is done at home to have the quality levels of professional work.
For example, if you want to sew canvas for outdoor use, you can get the aforementioned thread and do it like the best professional, especially if you have the right machines, but also doing the work by hand, with the right needles and using the precise time. And the same goes for other jobs that, until recently, could only be done in specialized factories.
