What gets your creative juices flowing? For me it’s gorgeous fabric, exquisite colour, and using my imagination and hands to create beautiful things.
I believe that surrounding ourselves with colours and textures we love, wearing well-made clothes that make us feel great, and feeling connected to the people around us make life better.
All Red Thread clothing is carefully designed for comfort and durability, because I know that when kids love a piece of clothing, they want to wear it all the time! Some of my pieces can be enjoyed for years, they’re designed to last as your child grows.
I love working with skilled local sewers, even though it costs much more than mass production overseas. I think you and your children are worth it. I also love choosing beautiful quality fabrics that surprise and delight you.
The name “Red Thread” was inspired by a lovely Chinese proverb I discovered when I adopted my daughter Samantha from China in 2003: “An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break.” I love the image of being connected to others by invisible threads, and hope that knowing something about the inspiration behind these designs helps create this feeling of connection for you!
