About Us

Threadapeutic was founded in 2015. Our team has worked tirelessly to achieve measurable impact environmentally and socially while fulfilling our mission to strengthen the landfill reduction movement. The concept of making something out of waste and turning it into something of value is what we do at Threadapeutic. We upcycle materials from the fashion industry waste as well as banner from past events and turn it into effortless clean silhouettes products such as sling bags to clutches. We are committed to our bottom line which consists of the people, our planet, purpose and also donating part of our profit back to the community.
