T-Shirt Waste Loom


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. Using the loom, it’s possible to take waste fabrics and create 18 by 18-inch tiles that can then be sewn together to create blankets, pillows, upholstery and garments. 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.
