Textile Tuesday: The Value of Deadstock with Queen of Raw

  • Re:Source 520 8th Avenue, suite 1202 New York United States (map)

Once each month, we invite a sustainable textile vendor to present their materials, fibers and / or processes. Join us for September's Textile Tuesday with Queen of Raw in our new space in NYC's Garment District.

Supply chains are insanely wasteful, which harm people, planet, and profit.  More than $120 billion worth of excess fabric goes unused in warehouses around the world every year!  With a family in the business for over 100 years, Stephanie Benedetto saw the problem first hand a built the solution.  Queen of Raw is a marketplace to buy and sell unused textiles, keeping it out of landfill and turning pollution into profit.  

Join Stephanie Benedetto, CEO & Co-Founder of Queen of Raw, as she discusses new sustainable business models, innovative technology like blockchain and machine learning/AI, and the value of deadstock.

This event will also include a sales area where we will be selling deadstock textiles and trims so bring some bags to take home your goodies!
