American Printhouse Partners With Thread
American Manufacturer Brings Custom Capabilities to Thread’s Responsible Fabric
August 24, 2016 – American Printhouse, a wholesale screen printing and garment manufacturing company, announced a new partnership with Thread™, the leader in creating jobs in low-income countries through reimagining waste into fabric.
The partnership transforms Thread Ground to Good™ jersey material into customizable t-shirts and other products.
Crafted from plastic bottles collected in the poorest neighborhoods in Haiti and Honduras and select American cotton, each t-shirt made with Thread™Ground to Good™ fabric supports 4,275 opportunities to earn an income in areas of the world that need them the most while supporting US manufacturing.
Compared to t-shirts made with 100% conventional cotton, each shirt:
- Supports 4,275 jobs and income opportunities in Haiti, Honduras, and the United States
- Removes 3.6 bottles from the streets and canals of Haiti and Honduras
- Saves 115 gallons of water
“This is a game changer for people looking for socially and environmentally responsible fabrics,” said Sam Akkad, founder of American Printhouse. “These products provide life-changing opportunities in countries like Haiti, in addition to the environmental benefits of recycled polyester.”
“The greatest brands are those that find a way to deliver emotional value above and beyond great product and do it within a large commercial market,” said Ian Rosenberger, CEO of Thread. “By working with American Printhouse, we’re able to help brands – big and small – truly connect people with the products they wear.”
The catalog of products made with Thread fabric is available at www.ThreadAndPrint.com.
