This lovely, high-quality sewing thread is made from recycled plastic bottles – a more environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional polyester sewing thread. Because it’s made in the same production facilities with the same processes, it’s virtually indistinguishable from Gutermann non-recycled polyester thread.

Topstitching thread is thicker than standard all-purpose sewing thread. It’s great for jeans hems and for hand-sewing buttons and buttonholes. Gold top stitch thread is the perfect colour match for decorative topstitching on most jeans, giving you a professional result if you need to alter the length.


  • Made from recycled plastic beverage bottles, conserving resources and reducing CO2 emitted in the manufacturing process. Approximately 300m of rPET sew-all thread is produced from one PET beverage bottle.
  • Fade-resistant and colourfast
  • Suitable for machine sewing and hand sewing

NOTE: This thread is difficult to find in Australia because most big stores think you’re not interested in recycled thread and won’t order it. I have to special-order it from Germany, so supply can be irregular.

Made in Germany from 100% recycled polyester (rPET) thread on a new 100% polystyrene plastic spool. Click here to view the Gutermann rPET thread brochure.

For a thinner all-purpose sewing thread, try Gutermann rPET recycled polyester sew-all thread or Scanfil organic cotton sewing thread.
