12 Years of Raw Threads

Thank you for getting us to this moment!

A note from our founder:

When I started Raw Threads my office view was a windshield, my husband quit his job and drove me across the country with a van full of shirts to live my dream. I had to email customers and design new shirts on a laptop track pad while sitting in the passenger seat navigating with an Atlas before roaming on a cell phone was more affordable.

We were on a mission to show the world my designs. We sold our house and put all of our belongings into storage while we drove state to state, expo to expo, marathon to marathon across the United States, even to Alaska in our white cargo van.

Cannot believe the journey it has been! Today is our 12th anniversary of @rawthreadsathletics I am so thankful to my husband, Terry for supporting me in making my dream come true.

This amazing journey has allowed me to see so many sights and places that I may never have gotten to go, like Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve and the Golden Spike Railroad in North Platte, Nebraska.

My husband, Terry, is also the reason we have @katemalo on our team now for 8 years. Not many of you know but Kate had worked for Raw Threads for 2 weeks before I even found out. A funny story because I wasn’t ready to hire anyone (I am a bit of a control person) so Kate worked in the back warehouse and Terry kept me on the other side of the building. Poor Kate. You are such a trooper. Little did I know how much I needed Kate Love you girl

Thank you to my husband for always looking ahead to the future and keeping us moving forward. Thank you to our customers who have kept us going for 12 years. We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of your lives. We cannot wait for our adventures to continue with you all.

-Love Jen


It has been an amazing 12 years with you all! We cannot wait to see what comes next! Thank you for all of your support.

—Love the Raw Threads Team
