The Squirrelz is an eco-friendly wholesaler that sells surplus textiles and other left over materials to creatives. In the textile industry, companies are often forced to throw out products that do not meet buyer expectations, stop working or feature minor defects. Now there is a company that is making use of these wasted materials by putting them in the hands of creatives.

The Squirrelz is a Shanghai-based startup that purchases leftover or surplus materials from textile factories. The materials are then sold on the company's website on wholesale or at highly affordable retail prices. As a result, creatives can purchase the materials they need for far cheaper than it would cost to buy new products. As Squirrelz CEO Bunny Yan explains, "These ignored but high-quality materials are perfect for designers and crafters worldwide to create with, all the while being eco-conscious without breaking the bank."

The company thus helps crafters access cheap materials while also reducing the amount of waste produced by the textile industry.
