Together we are making a difference

At Thread Together we aim to restore dignity and hope for our community’s most vulnerable by providing them with brand new clothes to choose from.

So much has been achieved and solidified now, including:
• A nationwide spread of more than 100 charity partners
• A network of reliable fashion and clothing partners
• An on-line capability to ensure that the clothes are best matched to need
• Establishment of 6 Wardrobes inside other charities where demand is constant
• Creation of an Outreach Centre (The Addison) – part of a collaboration of social services dealing with youth crisis accommodation, Oz Harvest and Orange Sky – and available to all local charities and their clients;
• Joint venture with AnglicareSA which will see 2 mobile Wardrobes (vans) going to the various charity hubs managed by Anglicare;
• Joint venture with St Vincent’s de Paul to establish a large Outreach Centre in Canberra to service the requirements of St Vincent’s and other charities in and around the ACT.

Fashion partners

A meaningful contribution

Thread Together collaborates with some of Australia’s largest and most iconic clothing brands to source end-of-line stock. We are the only organisation in Australia to source new excess clothing from fashion retailers and redistribute to those in our communities that need it the most. We believe clothing plays a vital role in creating better futures to vulnerable people and those in need. By working together, we help the fashion industry to make a meaningful contribution to society.

It makes no sense for a garment to be made merely to end up in land-fill with no other life along the way.

The rapid growth and high demand of Thread Together has cemented us as an effective solution to the textile waste problem faced by many Australian clothing manufacturers. Seafolly and Specialty Fashion Group have been pioneers of the fashion industry and pivotal in the success of Thread Together, through their ongoing support and clothing donation. There are currently more than 20 Australian fashion retailers supplying their excess clothing to us.

Message from Gary Perlstein, CEO of Specialty Fashion Group, Thread Together’s Founding Partner
‘There is no competition between clothing manufacturers when it comes to responsible disposal of end-of- line stock. We encourage our friends in the clothing industry to make Thread Together part of the manufacturing process – doing our collective part in corporate social responsibility. It is a no-brainer – rather than paying for the removal and disposal of stock, let it be collected to help people in need. A win for those doing it tough; a win for the environment; and a win for our bottom-line.’
