What is One Golden Thread?

One Golden Thread is a Fashion For Benefit Company.

We design uniforms for conscious living to remind that “feeling golden” begins from within, our message that you are already, and always, golden.

We stand for living compromise-free, simply and elegantly, with elementals ~ good from earth, good for earth, and ethically-cozy.

We stand for owning fewer things that we love more, worn for life over seasons.

What is One Golden Thread's Mission?

To celebrate the well-being of self, others & planet through timeless uniforms for conscious living.

How was One Golden Thread Founded?

One Golden Thread was founded by Jeff Scult, an entrepreneur, artist, clothing designer, and Solutionist dedicating his waking hours, and often lucid dreaming, to celebrating well-being by reconstituting clothing as a net positive for people and planet.

Three years ago, Jeff woke to the fact that he was part of the problem, buying and promoting ego clothes, toxifying our bodies, our soil, oceans and our atmosphere with the synthetic clothes we washed and tossed — just like 97% of the rest of the world.

One Golden Thread creates clothing that is sustainability-sourced, cozy, stylish for life rather than seasons, own less, love more, and with a message and a model that net-positivity impacts our inner-world, and the world around us.

We believe in regeneration. Every nature-sourced purchase plants a tree, exponentially.

What makes One Golden Thread different from other clothing brands?

Everything we create and share at One Golden Thread is grounded in principles of living life golden ~ bespoke clothing made with love, made from love (materials good from earth, good for earth), and made with love (intent for humans to stand with confidence and kindness)I From ethical sourcing to going beyond sustainability to regeneration, our mantra is to flip fashion from polluting to inspiring, from ego to we-go.

We design clothes that will last a lifetime in both their style and how they hold up.

Fabric/Material

What fabrics/materials does One Golden Thread use in their clothing?

One Golden Thread uses a blend of two of the most luxurious natural elements from nature, Lenzing TENCEL | Micro-Modal and Supima Cotton.

Our philosophy is to design with nature in mind, good from Earth, maintaining our human connection to nature. We also design with the end in mind, materials that will naturally biodegrade back to Earth.

Hallmarks of our Golden Threaded fabric is durability, sublime softness and breathability - like a tree.

No old growth forests will ever be harmed in the creation of our clothing.

Where is your material made?

Our TENCEL and Micro-Modal fiber is from the incredible nature innovation company, Lenzing. TENCEL comes from regenerative Eucalyptus and Beech forests.

Our Supima Cotton comes from from US based farms that use technology to grow the best quality cotton in the world with as little impact on the environment as possible. Supima cotton is grown only in the west and southwest states of California, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico.

Blending these two incredible materials, our One Golden Thread fabric is then created outside of Los Angeles.

What is TENCEL?

TENCEL is a botanic fiber found in nature. It is harvested from Eucalyptus and Beech trees and produced in a closed loop manufacturing process, which means it’s eco-friendly and safe for the environment. Eucalyptus and Beech trees are sustainable, regenerate quickly, and grow free of herbicides and pesticides. Our Lenzing TENCEL is sourced from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and PEFC.

What are the benefits of TENCEL?

  • TENCEL™ is softer than silk and cooler than linen.
  • TENCEL™ absorbs 70% more moisture than cotton in a controlled manner and then quickly releases it to provide the perfect dry sleeping environment. This property of the fiber reduces bacterial growth without the addition of chemicals (it is nearly impossible for bacteria to grow on the fiber).
  • TENCEL ™ is naturally hypoallergenic.
  • TENCEL™, by Lenzing, adheres to much stricter standards and uses very few chemicals compared to the product of rayon, bamboo and many other fibers.
  • Even though TENCEL ™is a natural fiber it is still easily machine washable. A great property of TENCEL™ is that it actually gets softer the more you wash it.
  • The solvent spinning production process allows for a unique closed loop production where the solvent used is recycled by almost 100%. This production cycle is not only safe, but extremely eco-friendly making TENCEL™the fiber of the future.

What is Supima Cotton?

Supima cotton is a superior type of cotton grown in the USA. It represents less than 1% of cotton grown in the world, and is considered the Cashmere of Cotton. What makes Supima the top of the food-chain compared to other cottons is its extra-long staple fiber that gives the cotton its premium properties: Strength, Softness and Color retention.

What are the benefits of Supima Cotton?

  • Supima Cotton represents less than 1% of cotton grown in the world. What makes Supima unique to other cottons is the extra-long staple fiber that gives the cotton its premium properties: Strength, Softness and Color retention.
  • The longer staple qualities of Supima Cotton contribute to the strength and softness of apparel and home products, ensuring that they are more comfortable, retain color longer and resist pilling over time.
  • Supima cotton is farmed using state-of-the-art technology and processes. From GPS navigation used on tractors to plant and harvest the cotton, to satellite technology and soil monitors, Supima farmers ensure they are growing the best quality cotton in the world with as little impact on the environment as possible.

How do I care for my One Golden Thread items?

ethics and impact

What makes One Golden Thread an eco-ethical lovestyle?

We focus on sustainably-sourced, ethically-harvested materials, with production practices that minimize waste to create good for you and good for earth clothing that you will feel great in. To go one step further, One Golden Thread plants a tree for every item purchased.

What is regenerative fashion, and our model?

Regenerative Fashion means sustainably-sourced all-natural materials with a give-back impact model that replenishes nature at a far greater rate than received from nature to make it. All decisions are based off a "nature and us is one" ethos-system, and our eco-system is a 1 x 108x exponential environ-impact.

As always will be, we are just getting started…

Why trees?

Trees are the lungs of our planet and our planet is sucking air. Ipso facto, we are sucking air.

Research has shown that planting 1 trillion trees is the most effective and cheapest way to reverse climate change. With this in mind, we go beyond carbon-neutral and plant a tree for every item purchased which has an exponentially positive impact on climate change and the environment.

Business need not be the enemy, it can be collective force for social and environ impact to give back far more than receive.

Where do you plant trees, and what kind?

We partner with the incredible NGO, One Tree Planted, who reforests on four continents. Our 2020 reforestation intention is to participate in specific tree-planting initiatives in areas OGT tribe resides, to convene our hands together in the soil of congruence. Regarding what kind of trees, that is determined by One Tree Planted's agri-scientists of what each region needs.
