Thread Tales is an innovative, luxury sustainable fashion brand.
We design and produce hand-woven scarves, travel wraps, cover-ups, wearable blankets and kaftans and pioneer our own unique fabric compositions.
Thread Tales is about the narratives behind an exceptional product. Fashion designer, Katherine Maunder, founded Thread Tales as a reaction to the years she spent working as a designer. Whilst visiting suppliers, she was appalled to see the pressure they were put under to deliver more cheaply, more quickly. She felt that the people involved and the quality of the product were hugely compromised - and nearly three-fifths of these clothes were ending up in incinerators or landfill.
Katherine was inspired to start Thread Tales by her intrepid midwife-mum. Whilst working with a charity in Myanmar she discovered Lotus, possibly one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world. Unique and rare (we are one of few brands with direct access to supply), Lotus became our signature fabric.
