A mix of drama with practical versatility, this Detachable Knit Collar features Threadbare Supply's signature chunky wool made to look like a plush, fur-trimmed collar. The loopy knit is wonderfully warm, and in a longer length for a more luxurious look. It even includes pin-backs on the inside so that you can attach this to a coat, jacket, or cardigan. Genius.
Theadbare Supply Co. makes the tough, pretty things you want to wear all the time.
We sketch, design, dye, knit, and assemble everything in Brooklyn, NY, under the careful watch of our dog, Oscar. Through small-batch production we can ensure that each piece is special, and that attention can be paid to all the details, making sure you love the pieces until they're threadbare.
Designer Sara Lugo (J. Crew, Club Monaco) finds inspiration in whimsical bedtime stores, the beauty in nature, and the pairing of feminine textures with bits and pieces borrowed from the boys.
"To the extent “Brooklyn” now designates more than a mere landmass, it means: small-batch production, urban husbandry, period facial hair, a fixed-gear bicycle, and “Girls.” And now, of course, you can’t travel to the bottom of the South China Sea without first passing through “the Brooklyn of the Malacca Strait,” or some equivalent." — The New York Times
Shopping local is more than a trend — it is the future of a sustainable economy. Studies show that when you purchase products from small local businesses, 68% of the profits go back into that business' local economy, creating more jobs, opportunity and growth. However, when you purchase items from a larger company, only 43% of the profits go back into the community — the rest is wasted on the bloat accrued by such a large entity and, ultimately, into the pockets of shareholders. Where would you rather put your dollars?
