Anna sews + serges new life into old threads from her Threads Todisco studio in Charleston, South Carolina.
How did you come up with your brand name?
When creating my company, I knew wanted to incorporate my last name in it. Threads Todisco came to me when thinking of an alternative word for clothes, and also I love alliterations. The brand name is now extra fitting due to all the strands of thread that fly around my studio and stick to my clothing in the process of creating.
What was the first thing you made?
The first thing I made was a pair of harem pants for my friend who was the saxophonist in Stop Light Observations. I used two different printed fabric for the front and the back. The front had a green tribal print with gold accents and the back was a sunny yellow printed fabric that complimented the gold on the front.
If you won the lottery what would you do with the money?
I would donate to a charity for humans with disabilities, travel, and save.
Who are your favorite artists/makers?
I am inspired by the people I cross paths with everyday. The people, artists, and musicians of Charleston continue to inspire me. I also love floral artistry and am tremendously inspired by this Hawaiian floral artist I discovered on Instagram, her account is ocean_dreamerr. I love color, so her use of pairing color and texture with flowers inspire me to bring that into my craft form.
What song/artist is #1 on your playlist?
Right now I have been listening to the song Friends by Francis and the Lights ft. Bon Iver. I have been listening to Lauryn Hill recently as well.
