Raw Materials

The right choice of raw materials has a positive impact on the eco-balance of a manufacturer and paves the way for the quality of the final products. MADEIRA threads are made from raw materials of the highest quality class. We put a special focus on the materials’ origin and check the quality in our own quality department.
We mainly use re-growing raw materials like viscose (wood), cotton and silk for our embroidery threads. Our sewing thread consists of high-class polyester fibres, which we exclusively buy from renowned suppliers.

Viscose

Our main product is the Rayon embroidery thread made from 100% high-class viscose. Viscose is produced from cellulose which is mostly made from an especially fast growing kind of spruce. Viscose is an organic fibre and biodegradable. MADEIRA viscose threads are Oeko-Tex certified with the highest “product class 1”.

Cotton

The machine embroidery thread Cotona as well as our Mouliné are made from 100% mercerised Egyptian cotton. Cotton is a natural fibre that is produced from the seed fibres of the cotton plant. Cotton is soft to the skin and has a very low allergic potential. MADEIRA cotton threads are Oeko-Tex certified with the highest “product class 1”.

Wool

The popular embroidery thread Lana is made of 50% wool. Like silk, wool is not a herbal, but a protein fibre. Our wool is mainly sheep wool. Wool is a natural product, biodegradable and re-growing. Of course Lana is certified with Oeko-Tex as well.

Silk

Our hand embroidery thread Silk is made from 100% pure silk. Silk is the queen of the natural fibers. It is precious and noble. Silk is produced from the cocoons of the silkworm.
