Save the Earth with your Shirt

Sustainable shirts made in America out of plastic bottles. Perfect for the office. Absolutely comfortable. Goes with everything. Great for minimalists, environmentalists, and those who love to travel in style.

 

Luxury Quality

American Made from Recycled Materials

We consume millions of plastic bottles every day with no end in sight. Many bottles end up in our oceans, contributing to climate change and affecting our ecosystems. Bottle Thread wants to help stop this pollution by converting plastic bottles into high-quality clothing that are made to last and go with everything.

All Day Comfort

Perfect for work. Goes with Everything.

Bottle Thread believes in fashion that is comfortable, durable, and stylish. Our shirts are perfect for those long days at work, or long trips. Super comfortable. Hyper-breathable. Feel good about the shirt that is made to fit.

No Need to Iron

Easy to Take Care of. Great for Traveling.

There's nothing worse than the need to constantly iron and dry clean your clothing. Instead, Bottle Thread shirts are made out of the best form-fitting material that doesn't easily wear out, breathes, and maintains it shape throughout the day. You'll never have to iron these shirts because they don't wrinkle in the first place.

Breathable and Easy to Pack

How We Got to Here

Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Bottle Thread was created to provide more sustainable clothing options for minimalists, environmentalists, and the stylish. There is so much clothing waste which is impacting our ecosystems and contributing to climate change. By creating more durable clothing, we hope to reduce the overall textile waste with more sustainable fashion.

Bottle Thread was created by a team of Sustainability majors to help address textile waste in the fashion industry. We are committed to creating clothing that can stand up against the fast trends, and wear of everyday life. Our goal is to encourage a minimalist clothing movement, while still providing our customers with the best quality eco-friendly clothing at a reasonable price.

Sustainability is achieved when there is a balance between the economy, the environment, and the rights of people. Bottle Thread is dedicated to these core values in order to provide the best possible product for the right price without compromising the rights of people or the environment.

We look forward to bringing the world more sustainable fashion.

Risks and challenges

Something on this scale has never been done before. We wanted to originally invest only a couple hundred dollars to get a prototype shirt up on the market, but the manufacturers we are looking at cannot produce such small amounts. Instead, we decided to take a different approach in order to raise enough funds to get the first wave of shirts onto the market.
