At college, Jacob studied a wide range of creative subjects including art, media, film and drama. Since graduating, he has used his creative talents coaching the sports of parkour/freerunning. He has taught to ages 4-88, including classes for over 60’s, to those who require assistance with their mental health, autistic pupils and young adults with emotional and behavioral needs.
He advocates as a vegan athlete across his social media channels, always keeping active and is most recently a 2 x Ninja Warrior UK finalist.
Jacob has always loved drawing, and as well as being co-founder, he is the vision behind many of the designs that Eco Threads produce.
Natalie fell in love with art at school, where she then choose to study special effects make-up artistry (prosthetics, wig making, fantasy hair design, body painting) at college, and then university.
However, since moving to London with Jacob in 2014, she has been in a job she has had little passion for, in the rat race as some may call it. In December 2018 she made the decision to quit, in order to pursue her dream of creating an ethical clothing company.
Natalie takes Jacobs ideas and turns them into reality. As well as co-founder, she is the digital artist of Eco Threads.
Update: Natalie left Eco Threads early 2020 to follow a life in Holland. Eco Threads is now run entirely by Jacob.
