The history behind SULKY
begins in the year 1927. Industrial embroidery comes to life; the first automated embroidery machine is launched. We create the first technical drawings for this machine und produce the first embroidery punch cards. With the help of these punch cards, the embroidery machine produces the embroidery designs.
Almost half a century later the foundation was laid for another success story: In 1968 our own embroidery threads and materials were introduced. At first they were offered for industrial use only, later they were sold to the consumer and hobby market as well. In 1985 SULKY of America was established in the USA and became the market leader for home sewing within a very short period of time. More and more sewing enthusiasts all over the world started using SULKY thread for their embroidery and sewing projects.
The year 2005 marks another significant milestone in our company history. GŁtermann AG has joined us as a new sales partner for our SULKY products. A variety of embroidery threads, backings, stabilisers and other embroidery materials are now being offered under the brand name SULKY by two sales partners worldwide:
|Sulky of America for the USA, Canada and Mexico|
|GŁtermann for all countries except the USA, Canada and Mexico|
