About Us

Worthy Threads was born simply out of a love of fashion. While becoming parents has certainly changed us, it doesn't mean we have to lose our edge, our cool factor. We want to dress our kids in clothes that excite us. We want to dress them in clothes that we like. We want to dress them in clothes we kind of want to wear ourselves. At the end of the day, we want our kids to look cool in pieces that are comfortable and can be tossed in the laundry. We set out to do kids clothes differently. We set out to do them cooler.

But, like, what does that even mean? 

I built models of ships on the computer then used a program to simulate what would happen if there was an explosion.  Navy ships have to withstand a certain amount of shock without breaking.

Basically, she's really smart...
