Montana-native, Jennifer Perry created this product out of her own need as a busy mother of 2 and an active member of her community. She needed a belt that not only supported her busy lifestyle, but also fit on all of her pants including her active and ski wear. Since then she has been creating her self run business and perfecting her product! The Jelt design is very innovative and it was important to Jen that all of the materials be recycled.

In fashion markets strewn across the globe, neutral and solid colors are always classic, timeless, and safe to wear. For someone who is searching for more expressive fashions, there is a developing sector, offering bold, vibrant, colorful looks. Traditional African prints, bursting with golds, blues, and purples have secured an inspiring place within this developing sector. It is maintained that there is a therapeutic element in wearing color and, as an expression of the innermost self, that it also has an empowering element. As beauty inspires, these are points difficult to argue with.

Themis and Thread has partnered with Forge Cellars, a winery in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. They are a small batch, artisanal, fine wine producer that has been in business for 3 years without selling a single piece of retail apparel with their name on it because generic, imported products do not appropriately represent their brand, story or mission. Together, Themis and Thread and Forge Cellars have designed a sleek piece of menswear with a fully transparent supply chain, based as geographically near the winery itself, as possible.

VINTAGE ROCKS!

Before we relegate our disparaged clothing to the back of the closet or the landfill, what one may see as trash, may actually be a vintage treasure.  After all, vintage is enjoying a comeback. Second hand stores are booming, red carpets present designer archives, and independent designers are reimagining the old into something new.   Vintage is cool, economical and ecological.  Even *sotto voce* "mom jeans" are reappearing on the fashion scene, so with a deep breath, perhaps we should take a second look at the clothing that usually elicits an involuntary shudder.   Hmmm.  Dare we venture into a more sensitive realm and take another look at......the bathing suit?

Last year, two eco clothing designers with distinct aesthetics, Kathryn Hilderbrand of Green Line by K and Aiste of Devinto, met and instantly connected on the topic of fashion industry practices and how they felt they wanted to be part of a different side of fashion. During conversations, they decided to collaborate on a small capsule collection…each would design 3 pieces, staying true to the natural vision of their individual brands, while showing that a mix and match of the pieces created, could be cohesive in a chameleon-like way, allowing wearers to transform with each combination. The collection was fittingly named Singlestream.
