Dayton Threads is looking to work with independent designers across multiple product categories including clothing, jewelry, accessories, beauty and grooming products, as well as homeware/homegoods, stationery and gifts.
Creators are NOT required to reside in Dayton, however, all designs sold at Dayton Threads must be made in the U.S., by the designer themselves, with an artisan sewing team of 10 people or less using traditional sewing methods or under their close supervision via the Dayton Garment & Textile District.
