About Maker Threads

Hi, I'm Lachlan 👋


As a maker myself, I've always had an affinity for startup tees. When I was updating my wardrobe, I had trouble sourcing well-designed startup shirts that were discrete enough to wear throughout everyday life.

My solution

I wanted to design my own personalised tees that catered to my interests as a maker. Unlike most bold startup tees, these shirts were designed to match my everyday wardrobe. I wanted these to look like designer shirts that I could wear out to any occasion, not just industry hackathons.

After printing my own designs, I shared the collection on Product Hunt and quickly found that it wasn't just me who was facing this problem.

I built Maker Threads to help product builders and startup folk to express themselves in a comfortable way.

Whether you're an early-stage indie hacker, or a well-funded startup - there's a design to suit makers from all backgrounds.
