The craftsmanship and quality of shoes and leather goods 100% designed and produced in Italy, combined with the creativity and style shown by designer Thushini Fernando, born and raised in Sri Lanka and trained in Milan, are the basis of the philosophy of footwear brand Thread.
The brand values mix cultural heritage with love for classic Italian style: the manufacturer is based in Vigevano, a small town near Milan, where the best shoes of the world are produced. Their skills in crafting state of the art footwear, handed down from generation to generation, are combined with a strong passion for the quality of the materials and for perfectly finished details.
Precious velvet slingbacks, soft leather slippers, feminine kitten heels, contrasting textured straps, delicate ballet flats embellished with chunky buckles: Thread shoes are delicately designed flat shapes, crafted in precious materials that often play with contrasting textures.
The palette has a precise tropical inspiration, decidedly natural. Rough linen color, neutrals, earth tones and spicy hues, forest green and sky blue, all elements of the journey through space and time, that brought Thushini Fernando from her home in Sri Lanka to Milan.
