In our changing economy and environmental issues there are so many of us seeking a more "earth friendly", economical and sustainable way to provide for our daily living needs. Mass production and exploitation of cheap labor has been exposed for what it is and the lives it negatively impacts. Meanwhile there is an ever growing community of small home based businesses that provide high quality sustainable garments. These businesses are growing daily. Supporting home grown businesses like Grateful Threads helps keep the community thriving and stimulates the local economies.

Eco, Green and Re-Fashion are all ideas whose time has arrived and I am happy to be a part of it. Thank you for visiting and supporting independent artists.

FABRIC :::

I oversee all aspects of clothing production from fabric selection, which is all organic, to the dying which I do myself with plant derivative low impact dyes. All designs are hand cut and all seams serged to create a high quality, lasting garment.

All fabric is organic hemp/cotton.

COLOR :::

A color chart link has been included in most listings.

Here is a more detailed color chart for Facebook users.

All items are dyed by hand, individually, with natural plant derivative dyes.
~There can be occasional inconsistencies in color due to the dying process.
~The dying process can also vary slightly from batch to batch.
~Color may vary according to your browser and settings.
If you have a specific color request please convo me.

SIZE :::

A general size chart has been included in most listing.

Measurements are not imperative but make for a more custom fit garment.

~Pant and skirt lengths are generally long allowing you to adjust them to your desired length. The edges are left raw intentionally and can be cut. This is part of the look of the clothing and not an over site.

ORDERING :::

Please allow 3 weeks turn around time for your order. If you need an item in a shorter amount of time please convo me.

Be sure to include your size, measurements and color choice in the notes section during check out.

About hemp fiber ~

Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Clothing made from hemp will outlast clothing made from more conventional fibers by many years. Hemp fiber is strong and will hold its shape, stretching less than other natural fiber. This keeps the garment from stretching out or distorting with use. Hemp gets softer with use and wears in, rather than out, beautifully. It is also naturally resistant to mold and ultraviolet light.

Hemp is porous and absorbs well therefore when dyed it retains its vibrant color. The porous nature of hemp allows the fabric to breathe making it cool in warm weather. The same principal applies to cooler weather. Air trapped in the fibers is naturally warmed by the body keeping you warm in the garment.

About

Be here now

Live in the present moment.

I am a tropical transplant now living and working in Asheville, North Carolina where my creative soul is nurtured and inspired daily.
I obsess over ways to use things that already exist.
I love to explore.
I am living with one foot in the ocean and the other on a mountaintop.
I am a creative and resourceful soul and have been an artist for undetermined lifetimes.
I have studied art and design academically but am self taught in most things. I have to be creating at all times.
I strive to create less of an impact on the environment so...
I use organic fibers and sustainable practices. Everything from start to finish is made by me in my studio and the dyes I use are low impact.
I design clothing that is.
Comfortable.
Conscientious.
Animal Friendly.
Socially responsible.
I think you're going to love it!
