Thread Design and Development

Thread is a product design consultancy. We integrate expert textiles knowledge with traditional product design.


Thread help clients expand ideas, identify practical solutions, and design effective products that deliver business value and real-world impact.

Our expertise and experience extends to both conventional and technical materials and processes, allowing us to produce practical designs built on our extensive understanding of the capabilities, benefits and limits of materials.

While we enjoy being involved from the start of the creative process, we can contribute to individual elements at any stage during the design and development of a product.

Our technical expertise and enthusiasm for what we do is a big part of what defines us, and we’ve collaborated with designers, engineering consultancies, manufacturers, brands and startups to create inspiring products.


Technical clothing design

Thread meets the demands of companies that wish to develop innovative technical garments. Whether we're designing for sports, protection, sanitary or medical purposes, we work to meet the users' needs. Our hands on approach permits us to iteratively design make and test rapidly. where additional rigour is required, we can test fabrics and assemblies in house or through our partners to prove the design prior to outsourcing production.
