Re_Threads: The Work-wear Brand That Empowers The Overlooked
Re_Threads: a work-wear brand that’s on a quest to empower the overlooked. The range includes 16 pieces: 7 items for women, 6 items for men, and 3 unisex items.
From t-shirts and trousers, to shirts, chinos, and jackets, Re_Threads provides versatile, durable, and comfortable work-wear for men and women (from all walks of life).
The brand was launched by Matt Roche and Liz McGreevy.
Matt has worked in the construction industry for over fifteen years, and Liz possesses a wealth of experience in the fashion sector.
Re_Threads launched, because Matt and Liz wanted to create a work-wear brand for construction workers, tradies, and crafts people that doesn’t harm the planet.
“My background in fashion was the thing that turned me away from the industry: the practices, the work ethic that went on behind closed doors, the old school rag-trade mentalities, fast fashion getting faster, and more and more waste each year,” said Liz McGreevy.
“However, all these wrongs now seem to be the things that have brought me back to the table with the intention of making them right, along with a lifelong wish to help others,” added Liz.
“So, this is Re_Threads. We aren’t perfect. We’re a team of people that believes that the world can do and be better,” concluded Liz.
