Thrumming.net is part of a business collective which also includes both its parent company, Thrums LLC, and its sister company, ClothRoads, a global textile purveyor.
Those of us involved in these endeavors worked together at Interweave Press for many years, honing our skills and forging a tight-knit team. The years have taken us in different directions, but the core relationships remain, and the core commitment to supporting indigenous textile artisans worldwide. Some of us are writers, some of us source and sell wonderful cloth. Words and threads. It’s all in aid of helping sustain time-honored traditions.
In 2007, we started Thrums Books, which was sold to Schiffer Publishing in September of 2020 after publishing approximately 24 titles focused on documenting the stories of textile artisans from Laos to Peru, from Mexico to Morocco, from Guatemala to Afghanistan, and beyond. The aim was always to tell the human stories behind the cloth, to reflect the importance of cloth in the history and social evolution of a culture and we’re excited the the book program will live on with Schiffer.
Following the sale of the book business to Schiffer, Thrumming.net was born and remains dedicated to telling the stories of people, culture, and the fabrics that connect us all.
