Renowned for our considered ranges of ready-to-wear, Needle & Thread has become a global destination for style-conscious women all over the world. Our pieces are inspired by classic English gardens, vintage textiles, delicate florals and antique prints.
Founded by female entrepreneur, businesswoman and fashion designer Hannah Coffin in 2013, the brand celebrates textiles, embellishments and femininity through contemporary pieces that feel special to wear. Our collection includes gowns, day dresses, bridalwear, childrenswear and accessories, as well as timeless knitwear and loungewear.
Hannah’s love affair with fashion began when her grandmother gave her a Singer sewing machine when she was a child. By her early teens, she was making garments for friends and family. A Fashion and Textiles degree at London’s Ravensbourne University followed. After a decade in the fashion industry, Hannah was ready to follow her childhood dream and launch her own brand.
Luxury retailers including Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-a-Porter, Harrods, Selfridges, Ounass and Harvey Nichols Kuwait championed our designs early on. Our collections have also gained a dedicated following among an international client base, including the British Royal Family and Hollywood’s elite, who, like many others, have embraced our feminine, whimsical designs.
Sustainability is a core value of ours. We have been awarded The Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury, in acknowledgement of our shift towards responsible sourcing. Our aim is that by 2024, up to 90% of our collection will be made from recycled materials.
Giving back is also important to us: we have formed meaningful partnerships with The Prince’s Trust, Save The Children, Women for Women International and World Land Trust. And a recent collaboration with Bobbi Brown saw nearly a quarter of a million pounds raised for the charity Smart Works.
