Fabric production is one of the world’s worst polluters, and it wastes water at an alarming rate. Yet $120 billion worth of unused fabric sits in warehouses around the world—or gets burned up, or thrown into landfills, potentially contaminating drinking water. This is a loss not just for the environment, but also for businesses whose profitability suffers from overproducing and over-purchasing those surplus fabrics.
Queen of Raw’s online platform matches buyers and sellers of unused fabric, offering a direct process powered by blockchain and machine learning. Factories, brands, and retailers post their unused fabric for resale on the platform, giving purchasers quick, easy access to new materials at lower price points.
Sellers also subscribe to a monthly service that maps, measures, and traces their supply chains, minimizing their waste streams going forward. Through its optimized supply chain solution, Queen of Raw has helped 100,000 users save millions of dollars—and more than a billion gallons of water.
