Fashion donors & partners
Thread Together is the only organisation in Australia to source new excess clothing from fashion retailers and redistribute to those in our communities that need it the most. We work with some of Australia’s largest and most iconic clothing brands to source end-of-line stock.
We also collaborate with a number of partners on other initiatives such as in-store and online point of sale fundraising. Many of our partners support us through financial donations and also by donating their time and expertise as part of their community programs.
We encourage our friends in the clothing industry to make Thread Together part of the manufacturing process – doing our collective part in corporate social responsibility.
It is a no-brainer – rather than paying for the removal and disposal of stock, let it be collected to help people in need. A win for those doing it tough; a win for the environment; and a win for our bottom-line.’
How to donate clothing
The rapid growth and high demand of Thread Together has cemented us as an effective solution to the textile waste problem faced by many Australian clothing manufacturers. Seafolly and Mosaic Brands Limited have been pioneers of the fashion industry and pivotal in the success of Thread Together, through their ongoing support and clothing donation. There are currently more than 20 Australian fashion retailers supplying their surplus clothing to us.
We make donating easy for our fashion partners
There is no minimum donation required to become a fashion partner and no financial donation required to donate clothing or goods. We have no limitations on the age of stock that is donated to Thread Together.
We accept donations of factory seconds or samples with minor flaws and we accept deliveries throughout the year, at a time or period that suits you. We can also organise to collect your donation from anywhere in Australia.
All we ask is that donations are new, unworn and undamaged.
