Banners to Bags

Every year, millions of banners are used for a short time and then discarded. We will take your mesh, vinyl, or billboards and banners of other materials and give them a new life—a new look and purpose.

Our Mission

Public Thread is a Grand Rapids based manufacturer that designs high-quality products around existing materials.  All of the products that we make are crafted using upcycled materials leftover from surrounding manufacturers, recycle centers and even the craft beer industry.  Through sustainable and ethical production, we honor our makers with living wages in a work environment in which they can flourish.

We exist for customers who value people, planet and the connections between all of us--

So that the things you carry tell a story you can be proud of.
