Sam Klein

Head of Product
Sam started her professional career at Macy’s in NYC and then moved to Pittsburgh to work for American Eagle Outfitters. While she loved the excitement of working in retail, she was never truly fulfilled at the end of the day. After having her first son and enjoying 5 months away from the office, she realized that if she was going to spend at least 40 hours/wk away from him, she needed to do work she was proud of.

Enter Thread! As soon as Sam read about B-Corps, she was hooked. The idea of working for a for-profit business with a triple bottom line was exactly what she was looking for. Sam joined Thread to test Ian’s idea of a D2C fabric shop. Thread quickly learned that customers are hungry for products that are both good for the environment and also the individuals working in the supply chain. They realized that the impact of Thread would be significantly larger if Thread could expand its customer base by selling finished goods rather than fabric. Now Sam is Head of Product and can’t wait to see Thread products out in the wild!
