Public Thread is a local manufacturer that specializes in the small-batch production of goods. All of the products we make are crafted using upcycled materials—everything from seat-belts cut out of cars in a junkyard to leather scraps discarded by aircraft maintenance services.
We see value in textiles and materials that already exist, and through partnerships with furniture manufacturers, the automotive industry, beer producers, apparel businesses, sign and banner companies and more, we are able to divert thousands of pounds of materials from the landfill each year.
Once these salvaged materials enter our space, they’re transformed. We re-imagine the intended purpose of each scrap to create unique products with a story to tell. Most importantly, we honor the makers with living wages and a work environment in which they can flourish.
We exist for customers who value people and planet, and the connections between all of us—
So the things that you buy tell a story you can be proud to carry with you.
We give new life to salvaged materials and textiles.
Community-based sourcing, design and manufacturing of sewn goods.
Re-imagine the textile industry by putting people and the planet first.
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.
