Tråd Collective was born so people could easily shop for sustainable clothes in Leeds. The idea came from owners Jo and James, who after making a New Year’s resolution to only shop sustainably, realized how difficult that actually was to do in Leeds. There were very few options for sustainable fashion that weren’t second-hand and it was hard to find what you were looking for without spending hours going through piles of clothes. They also realized just how much research was needed to finding out if brands are actually sustainable or not.

So, Jo and James started out selling items from Jo's upcycled clothing brand Wanner Label and curated second-hand clothes in markets around Leeds. From there they started building connections with other small local brands and began learning what their customers actually wanted and needed.

After much careful consideration, they decided to open up a shop in Headingley. Combining all the different aspects of sustainability Tråd Collective are a sustainable clothing and lifestyle shop supplying everything from pre-loved to upcycled to responsibly and ethically made items.

In their shop in Headingley, Leeds they have their own in-house studio making their own garments under their Wanner Label brand, but also offer tailoring services to customers. From mendings to alterations to made-to-order garments Tråd Collective have got you covered!
