Pigeons & Thread is a Toronto based garment production and design company.

Our goal is to achieve world domination by working with local Canadian fashion designers, aswell as many other creative types to help "take over the world - one stitch at a time!"


The company was started rather organically by Cat Essiambre & Kelly Henderson in 2012,.
They had met several years earlier through blood, sweat and tears during Ryerson's fashion design program. Later becoming roommates, they always had an in-house studio for working on projects. Eventually the drafting tables got larger, the number of industrial machines grew, and the caffeine induced all-nighters increased.

The number of clients also expanded, so they began working on projects together. Eventually needing more space, they asked the universe and as luck would have it she blessed them with a sweet studio in the Old Fashion District. 

Several months later, Pigeons & Thread was born.


P & T prides ourselves on helping make your vision a reality while maintaining a local, sweat-shop free environment. 


We focus on all aspects of the fashion design process from consultation, illustration, pattern drafting, grading and sewing construction.

That being said, the sky's the limit - also working in the construction of props and costume for tv & film, industrial fabric design, custom design, and wardrobe styling.


From start to finish, Pigeons & Thread and their team of talented garment engineers will be the hands on team making your visionary dreams come true.
