Threadless exists to help artists succeed. For over 20 years, we’ve partnered with hundreds of thousands of artists, promoting their independent art to millions of fans around the world. We are a diverse, global community of artists and those who support them.
But what’s our comic-book origin story? In 2000, we began as a t-shirt company based in our beloved hometown of Chicago. Since then, we’ve evolved into a fully remote company with a marketplace full of apparel, accessories, and home decor, powered by our Artist Shops community. We’re constantly searching for more products for our artists to use as canvases for their best, weirdest, nerdiest, most beautiful art. If you’re an artist, we want your art to be seen—everywhere. And if you’re a fan, we want you to find art and products that let you celebrate your uniqueness.
At Threadless, we celebrate the unique diversity that shapes each of us as human beings. We also support creative expression that drives cultural change and love art that sparks a conversation. Threadless is both a brave space for artists to share their designs and a safe space for all identities to find art that supports the things they care about. Even now, with the launch of Threadless Causes, you can make a positive impact on the world by purchasing designs directly supporting critically important initiatives.
Threadless would not be possible without fellow lovers of art like yourself. Every purchase you make directly supports the artist who made the design. With every design you score and every Design Challenge you vote for, you help shape our eclectic marketplace.
