We are living turbulent times. People are isolating themselves more than ever, and we know we have to be apart now, so we can hug our loved ones later. With all of this, we thought you might wonder who’s behind your screen at AmoThreads and it would be a good idea to introduce ourselves!
AmoThreads started when we started to be aware of the huge amount of waste in the Fashion world. We started to look at the facts and numbers and it was obvious for us: we needed to start doing something about it! We also started to understand, by speaking to designers who wanted to use deadstock, that this was a huge holdback for them, in most part, because there’s no easy access to these fabrics, that otherwise would go to waste.
It was clear that we needed to create something that connected these two distant parts and brought them together! With this in mind, AmoThreads was created in August 2019.
Our goal was clear from the beginning, to help reduce the huge amount of fabric that is sat in warehouses waiting to go to waste. It's estimated that there is approx. USD $100BN of this fabric around the world... every year! And it’s not just this. When garments are cut out as patterns, for instance, as much as 15% of the fabric can end up on the cutting room floor. Can you imagine the amount of this fabric that you could use in your projects? That’s why, whilst doing this, we're giving you access to great fabrics that would normally be inaccessible.
All of the fabrics listed on AmoThreads are deadstock, so this means that they are end of line, weren't wanted anymore (it might not have been what the original client wanted or they simply ordered too much) or they are simply no longer in use! Searching for them on our website, ordering them and using them in your projects means you’re helping us tackle this huge waste problem. By doing your part, you’re helping us doing ours and making this world a better place for us and the generations to come.
