About us

Hanging outside without getting fried!

Hi! We are Carlo, Sjaan, Mason and Evie and we’re the founders of Discover Threads. For the moment we call the Gold Coast home, but you will rarely find us in the hustle and bustle of Surfers! We love exploring hidden gems and adventuring outside. Camping, fishing, hiking, 4×4… you name it! Our journey began in 2015 when we decided to create stylish threads and custom designs for outdoor enthusiasts. Not long down the track, we had our first baby and soon got sick and tired of worrying about him getting scorched in the sun!

We weren’t fans of applying loads of sunscreen (often full of chemicals), every time we wanted to head outdoors. There also wasn’t a great deal of sun protective clothing out there and we weren’t too keen on the designs…. So, we took it to the next level! We decided to kick things in a new direction slightly and focus on sun protection for the whole family. We’re super passionate about what we do and pride ourselves on quality and unique designs. We hope you enjoy our range as much as we do and it inspires you to get out and explore a little more. Catch you all soon and be sure to tag us on your adventures.

Sun Protection for the Whole Family

Why we do what we do

Did you know that Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world? Crazy right! The good news is, skin cancer is almost entirely preventable. Discover Threads is all about providing trendy, sun safe threads for you and your family, so you can enjoy the great outdoors without soaking up all those bad UV rays.

Enjoying the outdoors with the family

If you’ve wound up on our page, our guess is that you dig the outdoors as much as we do.  One thing we’re sure of, is that you’ll enjoy yourselves a whole lot more, if you’re not worrying about you or the kids getting fried. The Aussie sun is super harsh, but don’t stress, we have you covered! From looking out for your skin health, to ensuring you look good and feel comfy, our focus is sun protection for the whole family.

Durability and function in design

High quality UPF 50+ sun shirts

Our long sleeve sun shirts are UPF 50+ rated, durable, breathable, quick dry, odour free and very comfy. Each design is very unique and you will be happy to know that no matter how many times you wash it, it won’t fade. We do limited, short runs of each design to keep things fresh. We hope our threads inspire you all to get outside more and enjoy what this awesome country has to offer.

"Humm... maaa uuum... yummm yummm. Nummm Nummm." Wise words from Evie
“I’ve given this shirt a hard time out in the bush and it has held up bloody good! Super comfy and allows the air to flow through beautifully. Definitely the best quality fishing shirt I have ever worn! Wouldn’t buy anything else”.
“Great material, comfy and breezy. Particularly like the collar as it stays up and doesn’t flop back down. Perfect for when I head out fishing to protect my ‘old man neck’ as my wife likes to call it. Really enjoy the product and will definitely be buying more”.
