Tenara Yarn

Even the strongest, most durable outdoor fabrics have weak points, the seams. This is because conventional sewing thread can wear out at the stitching seam and possibly break after a long time due to UV radiation, detergents, dirt, salt, water, rain and snow, among other things. In the new year you can use your spray hood or convertible tent at De Vries Maritiem to be stitched with Tenara sewing thread.

GORE™ TENARA® sewing thread is guaranteed for the same life as the fabric. It maintains the strength of the stitching even under the harshest outdoor conditions. It does not degenerate, crack or break despite extreme weather conditions, temperatures or chemicals.
