Artisan Partners. Threads Worldwide partners with artisans in 15+ countries to make our collection of fair trade jewelry and accessories.  Each piece of Threads jewelry tells a unique story of the woman who made it. Many of the artisan cooperatives that we work with employ women who are survivors of sex trafficking, deaf, or otherwise struggling from social, economic, and political hardships.

I am an infinitely better version of myself because of Threads.” -Carly | Colorado  “I’ve grown my Threads income to the point where I can leave my full-time job and spend more time with my kids.
