Magenta Threads is a slow-fashion studio run by Kate Pitman in Melbourne. She brings a breadth of skills and experience to her handmade clothing, having worked with textiles and fashion since her early years. This ranges from designing and making : streetwear; knitwear; tailoring; evening and bridal wear; theatrical, period and event costumes; menswear; homewares and screen printing.

Her focus now is on evolving a range of versatile modern looks, based on clean lines, good craftsmanship and high quality all-natural fabrics. Magenta Threads garments are comfortable, easy to wear and style, and flatter any age or shape.  She uses natural fabrics which are superior in sustainability, hypoallergenic properties, breathability in all seasons, and have less impact on our planet - as well as undeniable aesthetic qualities.

All patterned fabrics are Kate's original work, designed and digitally printed right here in Melbourne. They are inspired by her passion for nature and interplay of the beautiful colours all around us.

Magenta Threads is an environmentally conscious label and wherever possible uses deadstock or local ethically produced organic cotton, linen, wool and silk. Fashion waste is an enormous global environmental issue, so to ensure minimal impact, your garments are made to your specific order and size. All fabric waste is collected and sent to textile recycling manufacturers to create new products. 

Magenta Threads is accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia. 

Kate makes all her garments by hand in Melbourne. 

Buy Australian made, buy less, take care.
