Hi I’m Kim, the Founder and Creative behind Rugged Thread. Every year thousands of tents, jackets, sleeping bags, backpacks and outdoor adventure gear are discarded or tossed into a closet because of lack of knowledge or access to repair of broken zippers and rips. We are passionate about repairing quality outdoor clothing and gear for individuals like you.
We specialize in technical sewing, repair, alteration and tailoring of outdoor adventure clothing and gear including snow sports, cycling, camping, moto, river and hunting clothing and gear. We work on technical ski and snowboard clothing, motorcycle clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, camper zippers, soft-sided luggage, boat and RV canvas, sails and much more.
Got a broken zipper? Fix it! We replace, retrofit and upgrade all kinds of zippers including outerwear jackets and pants, down jackets, life vests, tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, and even camper trailers and awnings.
Let’s get started!
