We have been on the hunt for com­pa­nies around the world who desire to make an impact. Today we have one to share with you.Best-Prosp-Threads-Logo_3-150x150

We recently dis­cov­ered Pros­per­ous Threads and have fallen in love with their mis­sion and prod­ucts! You can imag­ine how excited we were when the amaz­ing peo­ple behind Pros­per­ous Threads wanted to share the inside scope with our readers.

The begin­ning ~

In an attempt to source more unique fab­rics for design­ers, the ladies at Pros­per­ous Threads decided to look at women around the world who have been hand-dying fab­rics for gen­er­a­tions.  They imme­di­ately fell in love. Not only is this fab­ric unique and hand designed, it also car­ries a beau­ti­ful story.

The women~

All tex­tiles from Pros­per­ous Threads are hand-dyed and/or woven by strong, self­less women who are work­ing towards some­thing larger than them­selves. They are moti­vated to cre­ate a bet­ter future for their chil­dren. This job means income, nutri­tion and edu­ca­tion. It also pro­vides the women with con­fi­dence, hope and prosperity.

The women behind the tex­tiles are incred­i­ble! They work SO hard to serve peo­ple other than themselves.

The Process ~

Here’s a behind the scenes look at Pros­per­ous Threads in action ~

The process to make their tex­tiles involves hours of dying, weav­ing, dry­ing, twist­ing, cinch­ing, etc. which is why these tex­tiles look so unlike what we are used to see­ing these days – they were all crafted care­fully by hand.

The Vision ~

Pros­per­ous Threads shared their vision with us, and we couldn’t word it any bet­ter! Here’s a snip­pet of the heart behind Pros­per­ous Threads:

We hope that all of us, as con­sumers, exer­cise the power we have! With every pur­chase we make — whether it’s our morn­ing latte, bot­tle of water, or new blouse — we are vot­ing with our dol­lars. This is our oppor­tu­nity to really ‘be the change’ we want to see across any industry.”

The Result ~

Pros­per­ous Threads brings tex­tiles to U.S. based design­ers, to incor­po­rate into their col­lec­tions.  A cul­tural fusion takes place when a designer trans­forms the hand-created fab­ric into a gar­ment or acces­sory rel­e­vant to the West­ern world. Here are a few pic­tures of their lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion with Branch Cloth­ing, another great com­pany mak­ing pos­i­tive impacts. Head over to their site to see the full collection.
