About the Founder or Team

Production Process

When old t-shirts and other unwanted clothing items are donated to charities, the vast majority end up in landfills--where they pollute greenhouse gasses--or shipped to countries in the Global South where they decimate local economies. Queer Quartz brings new life into old textiles by transforming them into durable home goods like hand crocheted rugs, pet beds, baskets, and wall hangings.
