LikeMindedObjects collaborated with Francesca Capone to create a loom kit that includes not only the loom but a book and video to guide users through the DIY process.

Created as a response to the fact that the US exports waste garments to other countries (Ghana receives 15 million used shirts per month), this DIY kit reminds us about our over-consumption, and 5% of the proceeds will go to the OR Foundation Second Hand Solidarity Fund, which works to mitigate the second-hand clothing waste crisis in Ghana.
