our mission at metal and thread is to bring the work of local artisans to the eyes and hearts of new yorkers and passerbys.we endeavor to remind each other what a hand made item looks and feels like..we celebrate the hand in an object…the sometimes awkwardness of a stitch that is slightly crooked…a weld on an iron shelf that lets you see a bit of the person who forged it…all of the goods in our shop could be made somewhere else for far less money…and far less sweat and tears–but we do it here..and we do it by hand..because it is who we are and it is how we live.
