About Us

Prima Alpaca Luxury Scarf


A real labour of love, Thread + Butter was created by New York-based textile connoisseur, Gerri Tobias.
Gerri has worked in the textile industry for over 30 years. Having spent decades visiting artisans around the world to learn about and source their crafts, Gerri felt that everybody should be given the opportunity to experience the beautiful products she encountered on her travels.
Born out of this desire, and created during the global pandemic, Thread + Butter gives artisans a chance to share their creations with others on an international scale.
Thread + Butter only shares items that Gerri loves and that have been sourced responsibly. A portion of our profits goes to women in small villages in Peru
Gerri lives with her family in New York.
