American Printhouse Partners With Thread to Create Responsible, Custom Apparel

American Manufacturer Brings Custom Capabilities to Thread Responsible Fabric

American Printhouse, a wholesale screen printing and garment manufacturing company, announced a new partnership with Thread™, the leader in creating jobs in low-income countries through reimagining waste into fabric.

The partnership transforms Thread Ground to Good™ jersey material into customizable t-shirts and other products.

"This is a game changer for people looking for socially and environmentally responsible fabrics. Each product provides life-changing opportunities in countries like Haiti, in addition to the environmental benefits of recycled polyester."

Crafted from plastic bottles collected in the poorest neighborhoods in Haiti and Honduras and select American cotton, each t-shirt made with Thread™ Ground to Good™ fabric supports 4,275 opportunities to earn an income in areas of the world that need them the most while supporting US manufacturing.

Compared to t-shirts made with 100% conventional cotton, each shirt:

  • Supports 4,275 jobs and income opportunities in Haiti, Honduras, and the United States

  • Removes 3.6 bottles from the streets and canals of Haiti and Honduras

  • Saves 115 gallons of water

“This is a game changer for people looking for socially and environmentally responsible fabrics,” said Sam Akkad, founder of American Printhouse. “These products provide life-changing opportunities in countries like Haiti, in addition to the environmental benefits of recycled polyester.”


“The greatest brands are those that find a way to deliver emotional value above and beyond great product and do it within a large commercial market,” said Ian Rosenberger, CEO of Thread. “By working with American Printhouse, we’re able to help brands - big and small - truly connect people with the products they wear.”

The catalog of products made with Thread fabric is available at www.ThreadAndPrint.com.
