Thread maker partners with sustainable start-up in Cambodia

Annabelle Hope PartnershipIndustrial thread supplier Coats is partnering with Annabelle Hope, a start-up sustainable clothing manufacturer based in Cambodia.

Annabelle Hope aspires to change the concept of garment manufacturing by encouraging consumers to think more widely about the impact of their buying power and how their purchase choice affects the lives of those that have produced the garment and their families.

The start-up produces womenswear and childrenswear in which all the components meet strict sustainability standards. These include Coats threads – Epic Ecoverde and Gramax EcoVerde – which are made from 100% recycled polyester.
