Sylvia Anderson formed Tristan Embroidery Supplies in 1994 after working in sales for a thread import
company since 1985.
Tristan Embroidery Supplies started selling embroidery
backing and threads to industrial embroidery companies. The threads we sold
were mainly rayon and polyester but Sylvia recognized there was a need for good quality cotton threads for Quilters
in North America.
In 1998 Tristan
imported Aurifil Cotton Mako
from Milan, Italy. From 1998 to 2007 Tristan made Aurifil one of the more
threads for Quilters in North America.
In an effort to find a
company that produces their own product, we
found Cucirini Tre Stelle.We were
amazed to learn that Cucirini Tre Stelle of Milan
produces a better quality product and has been doing so since
1903. Tristan Italian Threads is now able to buy factory direct, with the
exclusive right to import and distribute throughout North America.
Cucirini Tre Stelle produces threads like Genziana cotton mako,
Genziana wool, Tre Stelle cotton and Seta silk. The advantage of factory direct is a cost savings
that we can pass on to you, and also provide you with a higher quality product.
