„CRY“-Top Innovation of the Year


Prestigious Award for Gunold’s Innovative Thread CRY


According to the high-level jury of the ISPO TEXTRENDS, Munich, the fall/winter season of 2018/19 will be a season of sparkle and glitter and the jury selected the innovative thread CRY from GUNOLD as one of the top innovations for this year’s presentation at the ISPO show, which takes place from 5-8 February 2017. The special feature of this thread innovation is retro-reflection caused by thousands of microscopically small glass beads

Glass beads and thread?

Until recently this combination seemed technically unthinkable and indeed the realization is truly a masterpiece! Marketing Manager Stephan Gunold is particularly enthusiastic about the latest product of the company's extensive range of threads: “We are absolutely convinced of CRY. It is extremely innovative and allows for completely new optics on textiles, offering exactly what companies are currently looking for most: a novelty to attract and impress their customers.”


CRY is made of 100 % polyamide and is available in silver and two different strengths which correspond to a size 12 (250 micron) and size 30 (200 micron). GUNOLD recommends the thicker thread (250 micron) for sewing and weaving and the somewhat thinner thread (200 micron) for embroidering. CRY is certified according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and is suitable for use with high-visibility clothing (DIN EN 471) according to ISO 20471 2013 but certification is only possible on the basis of finished goods.
CRY is available on mini-king cones of 500m, 10 cones to a box.
