our people I respecting our workers

People are at the centre of everything we do

Each culthread is meticulously crafted to be stylish, comfortable, practical, and aligned with your values.


Most culthreads are handmade in our own atelier in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We don’t allow any subcontracting.


We have our own pattern makers, fabric cutters and product developers working alongside specialised tailors who make individual culthread products by hand. Many pieces are made entirely by a single craftsperson.

All of our talented tailors are fairly paid. They are aligned and above the Asia Living Wage and the Global Living Wage.

At culthread we abide by all government guidelines, and Labour Laws are comprehensive in Vietnam.

I wear many coats (literally), and many hats (figuratively). Mum, founder, CFO, doctorate student, financial trader, Olympic athlete… are just some of the hats I’ve worn and am currently wearing. Holding various roles is something every woman handles, and the right accessories make a big difference. 

Having worked 15 years with leading high-end international outerwear brands, I couldn’t find a single coat with everything I wanted.

My experience in design, production, and manufacturing of high-quality jackets served me to create something new: jackets and accessories that are comfortable, practical, stylish, and sustainable – without any compromises.

Jackets and accessories that empower the modern woman in her many roles.
