Chicago apparel company Threadless is yet another outfit to open a new office in the booming Fulton Market area, having just moved their headquarters into the multi-use Morgan Manufacturing development at 401 N. Morgan. The company, which was previously located at 406 N. Sangamon, recently shifted their production and distribution operations to facilities in other states, and no longer has a need for warehouse space in the greater downtown area. Founded in Chicago in 2000 as a producer of graphic t-shirts, the company’s product line has since grown to include everything from shower curtains to phone cases. For their new office, Threadless teamed up with Summit Design + Build, a firm that is also based in the Fulton Market District.

Not totally dissimilar to other offices in the area, the new Threadless headquarters features an open floor plan filled with colorful furniture. And the office reflects the nature of their business model—producing clothing and other items with artist-submitted designs—with the large murals found throughout the space. According to Summit Design + Build, Threadless will continue filling the space with more murals throughout the year. And with a ten year lease on the space, Threadless will remain a presence in the West Loop area for years to come.
