the materialist is a B2B marketplace built to trade sustainably surplus textiles and materials.

Fabric manufacturing is responsible for 90% of GHG emissions, while 30% of unused deadstock fabric piles up in brands’ warehouses before being incinerated.

Our mission is to accelerate a new circular ecosystem in the fashion industry, allowing fashion brands to buy and sell their existing surplus of unused fabric through our platform, hence reducing the need to manufacture new textiles.
