The Tale of TG

Since July 2021, ThreadGoldz has been committed to creating unique one-of-one streetwear pieces that stretch the bounds of creativity through hand+machine embroidery, upcycled+handmade clothing, and sustainability through waste diversion. ThreadGoldz specializes in creating Bucket hats, Vests, Pants, Jackets, Necklaces, rings, and screen-printed garments. ThreadGoldz is Black-owned and operated.

The vast majority of the fabric and jewelry materials used in the production of ThreadGoldz pieces are thrifted, upcycled, and primarily locally sourced. Threadgoldz is based in White Center, WA, and operates regionally, from Bellingham to Tacoma. Threadgoldz operates primarily online, at local events and markets, and does not have a brick and mortar location. YET.
