With over 100 years of experience manufacturing premium quality embroidery thread, Madeira offers a comprehensive range of solutions for embroidery onto schoolwear, workwear, sportswear, fashion, or promotional goods.

CLASSIC, rayon threads and POLYNEON polyester threads are complemented by the extended thread range which includes metallic, wool mix and matt effect options. For more specialist applications, we have conductive, reflective, and fire-resistant threads.

The embroidery accessory range includes magnetic frames to help solve most hooping problems and our range of cut and tear away stabilisers offer something for everyone, including a roll cutting service for when bespoke dimensions are required.

With the increase in demand for sustainable and resource-friendly products the MADEIRA green label was recently launched introducing two new sustainable thread options:

  1. POLYNEON greenmachine embroidery thread made from 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles. With the same features as standard POLYNEON, it’s shiny, robust, and available in 108 carefully chosen colours.
  2. SENSA greenthe only coloured embroidery thread on the market made from 100% biodegradable lyocell fibres. Lyocell fibre, made of cellulose, a renewable resource obtained from trees grown in sustainably managed forests and manufactured using an award winning closed-loop production process. Smooth and strong, sensa is extremely soft with a silk matt finish, available in 144 colours.

In recognition of our development in implementing sustainable solutions we were the proud winners of the Professional Clothing Institute (PCIAW®) Sustainability Award 2021

We look forward to seeing you at your local Print and Stitch Roadshow where we can introduce our products and offer embroidery advice, see you there!
