Beautiful Textiles Don't
Belong In A Landfill

There is no such thing as waste.

Public Thread spends countless hours reimagining and repurposing "scraps" from top organizations. Our artisans are master craftspeople turning what some see as waste into shocking products for everyday use.

Materials We Can Upcycle

What We Need


Contributions should measure a minimum of 3 yards each or enough to make 50 upcycled items. As for maximums, we have none! We’ll take as much material as you can bring us.


We want our products to represent the best of what’s possible when we work together to live sustainably. So, we’re looking for high quality materials. When you bring in textiles, a Public Thread team member will help evaluate if your contribution can be upcycled. 

A Few Tips:

  • Rolls of textile are preferred over loose scraps
  • Materials must be high-quality and sturdy, with plenty of life left them
  • Please no used clothing, old or stained fabrics, or materials that we are unable to repurpose
