We launched Heartprint Threads in 2017 with the mission to do good. The idea sprouted from years of living out of a backpack. Taylor, having done just that, always appreciated what travel had done for him. It brought out an overwhelming sense of gratitude for what he had at home and an ever-growing appreciation for people and their stories while on the road. Being a tour guide in Central and South America, Taylor loved the culture and bringing home artisan textiles for friends and family. Inspired by the work the locals poured into their creations, he wanted to provide more opportunity for the people in the regions that had given him so much.
The act of supporting artisans from challenged economies and sharing worldly designs with loved ones felt so symbiotic. This symbiosis is what lead us to create Heartprint Threads (HpT).
All of our products are designed in collaboration with makers in Ecuador. Each year our creative partnerships grow stronger and our family gets bigger. Learn more here. HpT’s was always about finding our own small way to give back, abroad to a country that had taught us valuable life lessons, and at home to a community that we are fortunate to be a part of.
Thank you to our extended friends and family that make Heartprint Threads such a fun and fulfilling experience. We would be nothing without their support and base the support we provide off of their love and kindness.
