Fed By Threads has a simple belief that if we shift towards purchasing items made in the United States, our economy will improve. It's that simple. That is why we are shifting to 100% U.S.-Worker Made (by November 1, 2012). We want to help revitalize the U.S. textile and manufacturing industries that used to thrive across the country. We can vote with our wallets and the best way to help create much-needed jobs in the United States is to simply spend our dollars at companies that create jobs in the United States.
Fed By Threads is part of a growing movement to raise this simple act of conscious consumption. While there are many factors that go into strengthening the economy, we have tremendous power to shape the future of our nation's economy.
Does this raise our costs? Absolutely. Is paying for U.S.-Worker-Made apparel worth it? Definitely.
We need to shift back to the days where America produced real goods for America. It is not that we don't think workers in other countries don't do amazing work. We just believe that people in this country can do so as well. It further cuts down on the carbon foot print of our choices by reducing the petroleum needed to ship goods from distant countries.
On every level, we are proud to stand behind our decision to only supply apparel made in the United States. Are you with us?

Fed By Threads is committed to the global body-positivity movement dedicated to building healthy self-esteem in the women, girls, men, and boys who come to shop at our store. The co-founders, Jade and Alok, also started A Beautiful Body Project, based on Jade's photography of women without airbrushing and digital augmentation which went viral around the world. We do not accept people judging themselves in the dressing room or when they come out and look in the mirror. If they don't like a piece, that's one thing, but if they are hesitant because of what they fear other people will think of them, that is where we step in to offer our authentic view of beauty: diversity makes us beautiful, skin has pores, bodies have bones and rolls, some of us are short, some of us are tall, and we are magnificent as a collective of unique and irreplaceable beautiful humans.
When a piece doesn't fit, it isn't because there is anything wrong with your body, it's because the piece wasn't cut right for you.
Many women who come to Fed By Threads have experienced body dysmorphia and often are unable to see themselves as beautiful as they really are. Their minds may focus on perceived flaws and miss the gloriousness of their true self.
At Fed By Threads, we are honest when we ourselves think a different size or style might look good on you, so this isn't one big cheerleader fake-sales tactic. And likewise, when we really like a cut on you, you will know it!
But as soon as a woman starts to tear herself down in front of our eyes, we step in, and cut off the train of thought. Why? Because we need to be models of body positivity for the next generations.
To this end, you will never see an airbrushed or digitally augmented photo of women on our website or in any marketing image, ad, or anything else anywhere else.
We also won't use only young-looking girls in our images in order to sell clothing. We will use what truly makes this planet beautiful: our diversity.
Let's celebrate each other.
