Announcement    Minor Thread was established in 2003 in Oakland, California by artist Charlie Wright, with a dedication to taking recycled and vintage materials and repurposing them into awesome, useful objects. What started with a bin full of vintage fabric scraps turned into a need to save overlooked materials and make them new again.

Today, Minor Thread is a modern variety shop of handmade goods. Charlie curates a beautiful selection of cotton and linen fabrics for her organic lavender sachets and eye pillows, creates organic tea blends and offers whimsical, retro-style home goods and accessories.

On Etsy since 2005

How did it start?

Minor Thread was created in 2003, in Oakland, California. Born from a desire to make something with the abundance of great vintage fabrics that were then readily available at thrift stores, Charlie started to craft cute, whimsical tote bags. The brand has grown from there.

The Minor Thread name is a registered trademark, and may not be used without permission by any entity.

    In addition to being an avid collector (and seller!) of vintage and retro goods for the home, I make and create with recycled, upcycled and vintage materials whenever I can. Born and raised in the Bay Area, I've lived in Los Angeles since 2009.
