If Haiti could turn trash into $ = good

Letter from Ian Rosenberger, CEO

I started Thread because I believe fabric can end poverty. If you knew me five years ago, you would have thought that was even more ridiculous than it already sounds. On my first trip to Haiti after the devastation of the 2010 earthquake, I wrote in my journal, if Haiti can turn trash into $ = good. This sentence became the foundation of my company, Thread. We take trash from some of the poorest neighborhoods on the planet and we transform it into fabric. Then we sell that fabric along with a 100% transparent supply chain to anyone who wants to make more responsible dresses, tops, shoes, and bags. If we’re all here to start a revolution, think of Thread as the ammunition…but with a fabulous hand feel and an even more terrific drape. And now it’s you that’s making a difference.
