Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™ (yes, causal not casual) is not just apparel; it's a lifestyle. The brand features original, thought-provoking, graphic designs that are printed through an eco-friendly process on American made, ethically manufactured tees, tanks, and more.

The Thoughtful Threadz™ brand was created by me, Nicole Lynn Jones, in 2012. I am an artist, photographer, and designer (read my bio for more info). After many years of searching for a way to share my message with the world, I came up with Thoughtful Threadz™: a lifestyle brand that would have a positive impact on society, encourage intelligent discourse, promote open-mindedness, allow for different perspectives and ideas to be expressed, celebrate the human spirit, and inspire greatness.

Following years of creative pursuits, I knew there had to be a way to reach a wider audience. Something infinitely scalable. Something that would reach far beyond gallery walls. Something that could be shared with and experienced by others who may not be actively seeking it. Apparel became that something.

Fashion is a part of our daily lives in such an ingrained manner that we all continuously participate, whether obsessively or unintentionally. This is why apparel makes for the perfect medium to impact society as a whole. It can be scaled on an infinite level. One "wearer" can reach hundreds, if not thousands of others, and location can span the globe.

The first collection to be released by Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™ was inspired by all of the innovative and influential people in artistic fields. Art, undoubtedly, has an impact on society, culture, and the way we experience life.

Four recognized artists, photographers, writers, musicians (bands), and dancers were chosen to officially kick off the line. Each design features a thoughtful quote by the featured artist with an accompanying design. More artists and categories will be added to the collection in the future, appropriately named

Without these artists, our world would not be the same.

Most of us fail to realize the impact we can have on the world we live in. By recognizing and celebrating what these artists' words, works, and lives have done to shape our society and culture, I hope you will become more cognizant of your potential to change the world. I want InnovaTees™ to inspire and encourage you to let your voice be heard, your experiences, thoughts, ideas, and perspectives to be expressed, and your spirit celebrated and shared!

Additional collections (PhilosoTees™ & MentaliTees™) are currently being created and will be released in the near future. Keep a watchful eye for more ways to Make a Statement. Make a Difference.™ with Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™ future Collections.

With your help, Thoughtful Threadz™ will be able to produce and release the Debut Collection InnovaTees™. The company has been formed, lawyers consulted, designs created, manufacturing process finalized, website started, copyrights registered, and everything is ready to go! The funds raised will be used for:

  • Minimums of each design to be printed 
  • Postcards, stickers, and buttons to be printed

This will allow me to fulfill the rewards and have a small inventory to launch the Collection online.

Not all apparel is created thoughtfully. So much of what we consume, and what we wear is made under poor conditions without regard for the environment or the people who inhabit it. We often don't give it any thought. Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™ is part of my mission to change that. To make things in a socially responsible manner without harming the environment, to provide jobs, good working conditions and wages for others, and to help our economy grow and remain strong.

All apparel is ethically manufactured in a sweat-shop free environment in Los Angeles, CA by American Apparel. Graphics are screen printed through an eco-friendly process with water-based inks. 

The other part of the mission is to encourage free thinking, innovation, intelligent discourse, and open mindedness; to impact society in a positive way, to change consciousness, to provide inspiration, and to share thought-provoking ideas, perspectives, and designs with the world. I am passionate about and dedicated to making a difference in the world. Thoughtful Threadz™ is part of my life's work, and I truly believe that together, we really can "change the world one tee at a time"™.

A portion of all proceeds (after Kickstarter funding goal is met) will be donated to arts-based organizations that help promote, support, preserve, and make the arts accessible to everyone. All designs, graphics, and artwork are original and subject to copyright laws. Copyright © 2013. Thoughtful Threadz™. All rights reserved.

I hope that you will consider becoming a backer for Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™. Awesome rewards starting at only $1 are available. Anything helps!

Please help spread the love and the word via Facebook, Twitter, or any of your favorite social media networks. You will be part of a powerful and positive mission, and I will love you forever! My eternal gratitude and endless positive energy will be sent your way.

InnovaTees™ White Tees

All designs are available in Women's and Men's Tees in white or the pictured color with black ink. Graphics are printed with water-based inks, which marries the design and fabric to create a super soft and comfortable garment.

All apparel features a modern, figure-flattering cut in 100% combed cotton. Due to the more fitted nature of the cut, I recommend ordering a size up from what you normally wear if you prefer a looser, more relaxed fit. Check out the sizing info below:

You will be able to specify the designs, colors, and sizes you would like after the project is funded. Please add $2 for each 2XL (to cover extra cost to produce). There may be slight color variations as all monitors differ; placement and design size will vary slightly based on your shirt size.

Make a Statement. Make a Difference.™

Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™ will soon be available online through our Etsy store and website. We have plans for expansion into additional product offerings in the near future. 

Thoughtful Threadz™ are clothes with a cause. Cause something meaningful, cause something powerful, cause greatness today! Be a part of the mission to have a positive impact on society, change consciousness, provide inspiration, and create thought provoking, and influential experiences through fashion. Thoughtful Threadz | Causal Clothing™ is not just apparel; it's a lifestyle. Learn more about our plans and join our Casual Community!

Together, we really can "change the world one tee at a time"™! Let's get started!

Thank You and Lots of Love,

Nicole

Risks and challenges

With every project comes inevitable risks and challenges. Although I don't foresee any problems arising, I am planning for potential mishaps. If the demand is much higher than my expectations, there could be possible delays in production; however, I have provided extra time in the estimated delivery dates, and it is likely you will receive your reward early or on time.

Of course, I cannot control the uncontrollable, like acts of God. In the event of something of this nature occurring, I promise to communicate and provide updates to backers.

I will do everything in my power to fulfill rewards according to plan. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I will respond promptly.

Thanks again! You rock!
