Public + Thread

Public Thread is about creating space for a resurgence of making things in our community again, and about reconnecting to what matters. 

Community + Connection
People + Inclusive economic development

Civic + Opportunity.

What we make, and wear on our body matters.  

So Public Thread is putting our values into action. We value paying livable wages and shifting the false premise that only money wins, over people and the planet. Instead, we see the apparel and textile industry having a positive impact on all three. 

We aim to be the highest-quality small-batch, cut & sew manufacturer of apparel & accessories in the Midwest. We are built on Michigan’s legacy of manufacturing and making quality products right here in the Mitten State. We believe in a sustainable business model — support people, the planet, and economic development of this industry in West Michigan.
