Hi guys! Wow, it has been a while!

I would just like to announce that my store, Egyptian Leather, is now selling FULL, Factory Sealed spools, of Ritza 25 Tiger Thread!

We have struck an amazing deal with the manufacturer, and we are now a certified wholesaler of Ritza 25 Tiger Thread! -- And the best part is, were based in the USA! That means no more $40+ Shipping, no more surprise bills for Import Taxes, and free shipping for everyone!

We will be selling the spools at the same price as Abbey England, minus the shipping, and you can find them Here, along with my smaller spools. (Which are still available!) AND John James Saddlers Harness needles are in stock too!

If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to post it here, or email me at Orders.EgyptianLeather@Gmail.com

Thank you to everyone who has given tiger thread a shot, you guys are awesome!

You are most welcome! Orders of full spools can be fulfilled in less than 5 minutes. As long as you order before 2pm It should go out the same day!

As for the 1.0mm, we are planning to place our second factory order within the next week or so. We will be adding more available colors with each new order, so if anyone has any requests please feel free to let us know!  What colors did you have in mind?

Any 0.6mm in full spools?

Since 0.6mm comes in 1000m spools instead of 500m spools, it is almost twice the price. For now we only have the small spools of Black and White in 0.6mm. But, with each new factory order we will be adding new colors/sizes based on demand, and we plan to eventually have every color and size available. We will make a note of every requested color/size and adjust our stock accordingly.

Ordered up some 0.8mm white from you. Great price and free shipping? I'm in!

Thanks so much for your business!  Don't forget to let us know how we did by leaving a review, and check your packing slip for a coupon code for your next order!

Hi guys! 

So I was emailed by a customer today, and he asked "Which one of you Tiger Thread sellers is the least expensive, Egyptian Leather or Abbey England?"

I think this is an important question, so I would like to address it here, that way everyone can get a good idea just how much money they would save ordering from us instead of an overseas supplier.

Here is my email reply to him regarding this issue.

 

_________________

Hi Brandon!

We are absolutely cheaper! You can see all spools and prices here: http://www.EgyptianLeather.Etsy.com

 
Here I've laid out some of the major differences between Egyptian Leather and Abbey England.
 
Egyptian Leather
 
Pro
  • Our spools are $30 flat, not including the 5% discount code you have received.
  • All orders of full spools include free USPS 2-3 Day Priority Shipping. No minimum order!
  • All orders of full spools will ship out the same day, if ordered before 1pm.
  • No importation taxes or duties if ordering within the USA. 
  • No surprise bills from UPS or DHL.

Con

  • Color and size selection is more limited, but we are always adding to our stock with each factory shipment.
 
Abbey England
 
Pro
  • Has larger selection of colors/sizes.
  • Shipping is quick, 3-4 days max.
  • Cheaper if you live in europe.

Con

  • Charges £ 17 (Approx. $25) for each spool, and £ 23 (~$30+) for shipping for small orders, even more for large orders, which can be very expensive.
  • Shipping cost is not shown upfront, is only shown once order is completed and shipped.
  • Website is not quick and easy to use. Prices are not listed clearly until checkout.
  • All orders are subject to importation taxes and duties, which can cost hundreds of dollars depending on the value of your order. 
  • Small orders are sometimes not taxed when imported, but orders of 4+ spools are almost always taxed, at customs sole discretion.
  • The bill comes only after your order have arrived at your door, and can be a complete surprise. Usually totalling over $100, depending on value.
  • Overseas shipping can be risky, one of my packages from Abbey England actually showed up soaked in water and completely damaged, giant hole in the side and the courier was not at fault. I have pictures of this package attached below.

_________________ 

End

 

 

As you can probably tell, US based businesses can save a ton of money ordering from Egyptian Leather compared to any overseas supplier.

 

If you have anything to add to the pros and cons list of either supplier, please comment below and I will add it!

Before seeing Egyptian's post on here that he was carrying the Tiger thread I contacted Abbey England and was quoted a shipping charge of $35-$45 to ship to the U.S. for an order of 3 or 4 rolls of thread. That's not counting any tariffs added after the fact.

I've ordered Ritza thread twice from Egyptian - shipped quickly, price was $28.50 delivered for 500m roll (used my discount coupon.)   The thread works great for me and I recommend giving Egyptian a shot.

Sweet!! I'm excited about this! I like Tiger thread better than some other stuff I've been using. I was looking for somebody in the US who sells this stuff. Now I know. Will definitely be placing an order here before too long!

Free shipping to US, but $20 to ship to Canada?

I apologize for the high international shipping costs, at the moment I have not set up specific shipping costs for Canada, but we are working on it!

Once we negotiate the best price with DHL or UPS, we will have the listing setup with different shipping options, specifically for Canadian buyers.

If you would like to get a detailed shipping quote for your international order, you can always email me at Orders.EgyptianLeather@gmail.com or send me a message through my Etsy store! Just send me your address, and I will get back to you with your shipping options.

Just a quick update, we now have much cheaper shipping options available for Canada. If you don't see a specific shipping option for your country please let me know and I can give you detailed quotes, as always if you place an order and shipping ends up being cheaper, I will refund any extra shipping paid.

I am also getting multiple requests for shipping quotes on large quantities, as such we are now setup with DHL and UPS to handle those orders. For large quantities please email me!

Thank you, and have a great weekend everyone!

News -  new colors are on the way! We will be getting many more color options including the highly requested Colonial Tan in both size 0.8mm and 1.0mm.

 

In addition to that, I just had to post these reviews. All the reviews I have received so far really mean a lot to me, and I think it's important that others see them, as they highlight a few things I want other people to know about my shop.

 

 

Left by Faith on May 12 - I think this review shows a big difference between the quality of my spools overall, compared to others. I want to post pictures of my spools fully packaged, but I am worried about being copied. My spools have come a long long way.

Left by Gary on May 26 - On sample card quality - I want to post a picture of my sample card as well, but I am conflicted, as I designed everything myself.

Hi guys!

 

Just wanted to let you all know I am doing a small custom order for a few customers that needed full spools of colors/sizes I don't have in stock. If anyone would like to get a full spool of any color or size I do not have in stock at my shop, let me know as soon as possible!

 

I am also getting more John James Needles soon, available in packs of 5 or 25!

I am also in the works of adding more tools to my shop, such as cotton daubers for dying leather, leather burnishers/skivers, and stitching punches/awls, as well as a few other tools. Hoping to get them added soon, I will post here when I have them up!

 

I am also going to be switching my email to a custom domain, so Orders.EgyptianLeather@gmail.com will be changing out soon to Orders@EgyptianLeather.co

 

Thanks everyone!

-John M.

John,

I can use .6 tiger thread..  I am looking for white, black, brown, colonial tan and cream.

If you are able to get .6 that would be absolutely awesome.

I look forward to see what tools you will have.

Thanks,

Phill

If I could also request amber glow thread color.

Thanks,

Phill

Is this Royal Blue you offer for sale , the same color as the Navy Blue from Abbey England ?

Yes!

Abbey use to call it Royal Blue as well. They changed it a while back, so the only way you can be sure on the color is to use the JK number.

Royal Blue and Navy Blue are both JK14

These numbers are asigned by the manufacturer Julius Koch, and do not change.

I don't unfortunately, I will email the factory and see if they have any lighter colored blues and let you know.

The blue in my picture looks a bit darker than it really is, The waxiness can change color to look darker as well, though it still may be too dark for your needs.  Would you like me to send some samples in the meantime?
