We have a love of the big, wide world.  We also have a love of the people in it.  Red Thread combines these passions in a unique way.

The legend of the Red Thread of Fate is familiar in many cultures.  “According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way” (wikipedia).  We believe that we are all connected, and that when we act on that connectivity, we can use our actions to help each other.

We have long dreamt of creating a company where every product purchased helps another person.  Each and every product on this site will help someone in need.  Most products are fair trade and benefit women who have been in dire circumstances.  Additionally, our shipping department is staffed solely by women who have escaped domestic abuse.  The owners of the company make absolutely no profit, but rather, reinvest all earnings into expanding our ability to help others.  This is what sets us apart and makes us unique.

We also believe that we are each connected to the earth upon which we live.  We dream of a company that inspires a deeper connection to the earth and its wild spaces.  We strive to be very conscious of the products we carry and the impact they have on the world around us.
