Schusser Threads is a Melbourne label that focuses on delivering unique handmade outerwear and merino goods.  Every item is designed, patterned, cut, sewn and seam-sealed in the home studio of Schusser Threads on Wurundjeri Land (Warrandyte, Australia).

The label is built on a belief that clothing should have a purpose, and that every item worn should enhance the performance of the wearer.  With this in mind, Schusser Threads aims to design and make quality clothing that protects and performs in cold climates.

About

Sustainability
At Schusser Threads the environment and outdoors is at the centre of every design.  With this in mind, the brand aims to source local, sustainable and traceable textiles.   As the brand grows this will become easier,  and more opportunities will be available to pursue innovative and sustainable textiles. 
I look forward to sourcing more renewable and natural fabrics in the future to ensure the band is not continuing to pollute the environment with synthetic textiles.

Repair and Reuse

We all know that sometimes things don't go as planned and you end up halfway up a tree.  Rest assured that holes or tears  are not the end of the world, and can be fixed.

If you have a Schusser Threads product that needs to be repaired, please get in touch and the item will be assessed to determine whether it is repairable, the material can be put to use somewhere else or the item can be donated to someone who will appreciate it just as much as you.

Tree Planting

Trees are one of of the most powerful resources we have in helping slow the progression of climate change.  With every garment, comes a small carbon footprint that is adding to the overall problem.  

In order to reduce the carbon footprint of Schusser Threads we are donating $4 from every item sold to Carbon Positive Australia.  This donation will ensure one native  tree is planted and protected for many years to come in previously cleared land, protecting natural biodiversity and giving the native vegetation in that area a chance to bounce back.
