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.

Services

Manufacture support

Leckey Design Healthcare Medical

Manufacture lead times often get extended by toing and froing with the factory. This is why we take an engineering approach to technical packs; Patterns, samples and detailed specifications eliminate ambiguity in the handover from designer to manufacturer, minimising errors that can arise through misinterpretation.
