Our Mission

Is to create the best organic & Fairtrade cotton bags for individuals, businesses, and nonprofits that make the world a better place by always being sustainable, ethical, traceable, and transparent.

Our Vision

Is to create the world’s most affordable, durable, sustainable, and ethically produced backpacks and bags, while having a positive impact on the world.

Founded by father-daughter duo Vik and Vizan Giri, Terra Thread was created in response to the adverse effects of fast fashion as well as the lack of bags made from natural fibers available to conscious consumers. Terra Thread believes in taking environmental and social responsibility in all aspects of our business by always being sustainable, ethical, traceable, and transparent.

Fairtrade encourages sustainable cotton production.

Fairtrade Organic Cotton

“Helping to expand the organic cotton industry in India, and to diminish the prominence of conventional cotton farming, remains the core of what we do.”

Organic cotton is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards and is free of toxic chemicals such as pesticides and insecticides as well as GMOs. Fairtrade organic cotton practices and production sustain: Soil health, Eco-system preservation, Wildlife health, and Well-being of people. Learn about Fairtrade Organic Cotton HERE
