Queer Wellness came to be in early 2016. It started with an embroidered t-shirt in a (what would best be described as) "word art style". This is now the original Queer Wellness t-shirt that you can find in this shop. Oline Marie Andersen, who at the moment was studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Design made the t-shirt for herself. Some of her friends from the queer communities asked if they could buy it - and of course they could. The more Queer Wellness in the world the better the world. She ordered t-shirts that her friends could pick up in her apartment at Nørrebro (which you still can).
2 years later on a summerday in 2018 Oline visited her friend Max in his backyard at Nørrebro. Max was studying fashion design at The Royal Danish academy of Design and was frustrated about the industry. It was stressful and not sustainable. That's not Queer Wellness. So Max and Oline decided to start making embroidered caps by hand that they sold for the price of production. The caps had embroidered statements like "No Hetero" and "Queer Wellness". The thought behind was to put awareness on LGBTQ+ peoples struggles. Too many LGBTQ+ are having mental health problems due to daily homo/queer/transphobia/racism and lack of representation. Queer Wellness want to show other queers that they are not alone. We're here and we want this world to be a better place for us.
In 2020 Max and Oline graduated and now in 2021 they're ready to go fulltime on spreading the Queer Wellness message. Queer Wellness consist of Oline Marie Andersen and Max Steen.
At checkout you can choose between three NGOs that will get a donation of 10% of the the sales price. If you choose none of them the donation will go to Queer Wellness - which help us grow. We made a contract with LGBT+ Danmark, DRC Dansk Flygtningehjælp and Verdens Skove. Every third month we will transfer the total donations. All three organizations has the right to see our monthly order confirmations and financial accounting.
All our products with embroidery are embroidered at Profil Broderi in Vejle or to be more precise, Jerlev - a small town outside Vejle in Southern Denmark. Profil Broderi is a firm etasblished in 2000 by Lilly and Marianne (mother and daughter). Today Profil Broderi consist of four women with years of experience within the textile industry. In the header video you can see their awesome machines in action.
