111Threads main goals are to provide a sustainably sourced, affordable, and size-inclusive shop. The driver of this goal is the recent uprising of fast fashion. Fast fashion can be defined as the mass production of cheap, poor-quality, disposable clothing. This trend is diabolical and a ferocious attack on the environment, human rights, animal rights, and on you. Brands like Shein, Zaful, Aliexpress and so much more are dragging you in with trendy clothes for cheap prices and masking their true behaviors which is abusing their planet, their workers, and their platforms.
111threads is a perfect example of what you call slow fashion. Here at 111 we upcycle second-hand clothing and rework them into one-of-a-kind outfits that fit into today's trends at an affordable price to you and the environment. Offering everyone up to date pieces that allow you to express yourself and be unique while also being an ecoconscious shopper. In 111 you can look and feel good knowing you’re the best dressed and at a good cost, one that’s not breaking wallets or ecosystems globally.
The reality is if we could all extend an article of clothing by just three months, it would reduce its carbon and water footprints, as well as waste generation, by 5 to 10 percent. By taking these pieces and at least giving them one more chance at life we could potentially save an enormous amount of waste, carbon, water, and energy. So we thank you for being an ecoconscious shopper and choosing the environment over pathetic fast fashion.
Many people ask what 111 means to me. 111 symbolizes manifestation and the fruition of all your hard work. Manifestation is a practice and belief that your thoughts create your reality, and whatever you chose to be, can be. In order to manifest you must set clear intentions to the universe, take inspired actions, and have faith. And it’s as simple as that. For me art and the hustle has always been a dream of mine and I'm determined to manifest it all throughout my life. By bringing 111threads into existence I was able to create the life I knew I wanted and was destined for.
