Textile Tuesday: The Value of Deadstock with Queen of Raw

Once each month, RE:SOURCE invites a sustainable textile vendor to present their materials, fibers and / or processes. Join September's Textile Tuesday with Queen of Raw in their 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 they will be selling deadstock textiles and trims so bring some bags to take home your goodies!
