Ep10 Kristin Keen on Rethreaded

What do Mother Theresa, sex trafficking and Southwest Airlines have in common? Well, in this conversation with Kristin Keen, founder of Rethreaded, you’re about to find out.

I discovered Rethreaded a year ago at a “Local Influencers” pop-up closet event – kind of like a yard sale – but in a beautifully lit hotel ballroom, complete with champagne and delicate hors d’oeuvres. It was a place to see and be seen.

While I was browsing through racks of “gently used” trendy clothes (beautiful, but nothing that I would wear) I noticed a small display tucked away in the corner of the ballroom: simple yet brightly colored infinity scarves made from discarded t-shirts and handmade leather bracelets crafted from airplane seat covers. 

Yeah, this was something more my style, and when I heard they were all created and sold by survivors of sex trafficking - wow - I couldn’t open my wallet fast enough! 

As the woman at the booth - a survivor herself - proudly wrapped my purchase in a brown paper gift bag, she told me how, Rethreaded transforms women who basically feel like a useless and discarded piece of clothing into empowered women of worth

You know how I love stories, and how eager I am to share – however, I’ll let Kristin tell us this one. 

Rethreaded exists to renew hope, reignite dreams and release potential for survivors of human trafficking through business.

It’s a story of purpose, empowerment and healing, and it’s
really good one. . .
