Who Made Our Threads
"Our customer is connected with their chosen piece through the telling of its story, how the fabric was made, who by and its journey through their hands to yours."
Our story- The Lotus Fabric
‘My Mother is an inspirational Midwife who travels for miles through the Myanmar jungle to be able to teach Traditional Birth Assistants safer birthing practices. On one of her journeys she came across this beautiful material made from the stems of Lotus flowers. I was intrigued by its rare softness and raw beauty. We now work with the Artisans that hand weave this incredible fabric into our designs’. Katherine Maunder, Thread Tales Co. Founder
Rare, Raw, Precious
Lotus is our signature fabric and is exceptionally rare. Thread Tales Co. are one of very few brands using Lotus. We are also privileged to be able to specify only the highest grades available, usually reserved for high order Monks and Royalty.
The discovery of the Lotus fabric inspired us to search for other beautiful, raw materials to work with, such as camel and yak, all handwoven by talented Artisans.
Sustainability – the future of fashion
Fast fashion comes at a cost to the environment and to Human kind. Embracing sustainable practices and social responsibility is a driving force that is embedded into Thread Tales Co DNA.
Customers of luxury products look for high quality materials with good provenance. They look to ‘Wear Something that means something’
