Thread Caravan founder Caitlin Ahern decided to start Thread Caravan after living abroad connecting with locals in various cities and countries. To share that insight with you, we've just launched Thread Caravan Custom Trips!

We understand our scheduled trip dates might not work for everyone, or that you and your group may have some special trip plans in mind. That's why we've created custom trip itineraries.

Groups will work directly with Thread Caravan founder Caitlin Ahern to craft a trip that meets their specific desires while still retaining the artisanal Thread Caravan flavor. Caitlin will connect you to local and expat creatives and ethical organizations in each one of our selected destinations. 

From sheering sheep and watching the northern lights in Iceland, to designer fabric sourcing trips in Guatemala... from apsara dancing classes at ancient Cambodian temples to dancing on the streets with local New Orleans musicians, these trips are going to be special! 

These trips are perfect for: 

  • designers wanting to source materials directly from artisans, allowing them greater social impact and a better understanding of their supply chain
  • university Spring Break + Summer Break trips
  • work retreats
  • bachelor and bachelorette parties
  • birthday celebrations
  • groups of friends and/or family wanting to have a unique experience without worrying about all the logistics

Hop on over to our Custom Trips page to learn more, and as always, please reach out to us if you have any questions at all! We look forward to caravaning with y'all!
