We're all about...
14 million tons of textiles are discarded every year in the US. We divert unwanted clothing from going to the landfill and turn it into versatile yarn.
Our partner creators with barriers to employment gain the mental and physical benefits of knitting and crocheting while creating products customers love.
When a customer makes a purchase, the funds generated benefit our sustainability mission as well as returning directly into the hands of our creators.
We Need You!

Giglet's Garments was founded in the summer of 2021 and is the brainchild of founder and CEO, Emi Wall, as a way to deal with the massive amounts of post-consumer textile waste polluting our environment every day.
In December 2022, we launched the Giglet's Garments Foundation, which is the non-profit side of our mission devoted to researching and developing new ways to keep textiles out of our landfills and environments.
The largest of our current initiatives is the Handmade line, in which we reclaim discarded textiles and turn them into sustainable and versatile yarn, then teach people to knit and crochet in order to earn money while learning a therapeutic hobby.
We're also committed to hosting local events such as clothing swaps and upcycling workshops in order to decrease the burden of textile waste on our community.
It's our mission to re-define what we consider 'waste' and use products destined for the landfill to create a positive impact in our community and environment. The Giglet's Garments Foundation continuously workshops new ideas to provide circular community-level solutions to the problem of textile waste.
