FAQ: Colored thread choices for our sew-on leather bicycle accessories

Can red thread be purchased in lieu of the choices displayed on your web page? For the black city grips.

Thanks, Roger

Great question.

To keep things simple, Walnut currently only carries waxed thread for its sew-on leather bicycle accessories in four different standard, natural-toned colors: white, tan, dark brown, and black.

Waxed Thread Color Choices for Sew-on Leather Bar Wraps

But, we think that a color contrast, like red stitching with black grips, would look totally hot! Here are some resources to help you find the right waxed colored thread for your bar wraps:

  • We send our stitch kit with waxed nylon (“sailmaker’s thread”). Any kind of waxed thread will work equally well, but we like the nylon for durability. The waxing is the most important part, for strength and durability in the outdoor elements and the rain.
  • The Maine Thread Company offers over 31 colors of waxed nylon thread and in different thread weights. They are a terrific, American, MAINE MADE company.
  • White Clover Kiln on Etsy offers waxed linen thread in 37 colors and sells them in very small quantities, which is nice. You only need a 2-4 yards for our products, so the smallest quantity will do.
We’d love to see pictures of the installation when it’s done. Tag us with #walnutstudiolo on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
