What our customers are saying

So pleased!

I considered buying the Lupa Large Canvas tote for many months and I'm so glad I finally made the purchase. It is incredibly sturdy and well-constructed. I love the little inside pocket for my phone and keys. It works well when carrying only a few items, and also fills up well when going out for an all-day outing. I've received so many compliments! I will be a repeat customer

Kate Wilson on Lupa Tote Bags

Got what I wanted

The bag is durable and can sustain a lot more that you think.

Danielle on String Bag

Great quality, loved these pouches.

I'm using these for color pencils, crayons, makeup bag. They look durable. Would highly recommend and would purchase again

Gabriela Palmer on Honua Pouches

The highest quality cotton canvas.

This is the sturdiest cotton canvas I have ever seen! This kind of bag will definitely last a lifetime. I’m looking forward to years of good use and I will be ordering from Terra Thread again.

Best Backpack Ever!

I absolutely love this backpack! I use it to carry items around for my 3.5 year old. I wanted to find a backpack that wasn’t full of toxic chemicals and this is it! The color is beautiful and it’s the perfect size! Super happy with this purchase! Will definitely continue buying from this company!!!


A sexy bag! Well made,ethical,stylish! Love the color and the durable organic cotton!

Blown away by both the ethics and quality of my Terra Thread bags. I purchased two backpacks for my kids heading back to school during their bogo promo so with each backpack I got a tote bag for free. And I love every single bag we have received. This is the only organic cotton fair trade product line I have found! Their quality of fabrics and stitching is impeccable, I am very pleased with my purchases! Plus: kid approved!

I got the 13” one for my MAC and I cannot begin to say how much I love it. Fits great and is fantastically made. My lab even got a hold of it and there was no damage. Definitely addicted to Terra Thread.


I love my purchases! The backpack is so durable and heavy duty. It Carrie's my laptop, textbooks, and personal items. The quality is great and the color is beautiful. The tote is durable as well. A little on the smaller side but I love them both!
