Fed By Threads' Story




1 in 6 Humans Is Involved With Making Clothes.

Join A Revolution In Fashion and Change Clothes

Our Mission

Apparel is the second dirtiest global industry behind petroleum with 16.6% of the world population working in the clothing trade. Fed By Threads is the first American-Made, CO2 neutral, Supply Chain Aware, Eco-Corporate Apparel business that exclusively carries only certified, responsibly manufactured products, and provides emergency meals through the purchase of our garments. With a social enterprise model that benefits local communities and protects polar bears and elephants, Fed By Threads’ mission is to change how clothes are made by reducing (carbon, energy, and water consumption), eliminating 168M (5-14yr old) child laborers from the global apparel industry, and removing toxins from conventional manufacturing. By providing eco-data to customers for every order and shifting the way corporations and institutions approach apparel, Fed By Threads is not just a clothing brand, it is an Earth Positive technology company that utilizes organic agriculture and advanced recycling to deliver 100% Earth Positive products. Increase the value of corporate CSR initiatives without increasing corporate budgets and switch to GUILT FREE apparel that improves lives while doing good. Feel the difference. www.fedbythreads.com

How Do We Do This?

We create timeless sweatshop-free American-made organic clothing that can be worn for years that helps feed some of the 46 millions Americans in need, supports safe good-paying American garment jobs, reduces the use of sweatshops, and lowers our impact on the earth.

Our Humble Beginnings

This started as 1 rack of t-shirts as a way to feed people and attack hunger in America. But after buying our first batch of cute & cheap shirts off the internet, we learned the truth behind cheap shirts and knew we had to change ourselves before we could change the world. So we switched to sweatshop-free American-made clothing that is organic and doesn't use heavy-metal dyes, pesticides, formaldehyde and other harmful ingredients. 

Our Amazing Customers

We are blessed to have the best customers in the world who stand for something bigger than themselves, who recognize the power their choices have to shape the world around them, and have a desire to do good in their lives. Thank you for being amazing! Many of you saw Fed By Threads start as one rack of t-shirts in our old dance and yoga studio with a goal of feeding 360 people in need. It was a tiny idea and a dream. Today we have fed 100,000's of people because inspiring people like you cared. But what people need more than emergency meals is JOBS. We are proud to support directly or indirectly over 175 American garment jobs and part of a future without sweatshop labor.
