SECTUAL was founded by Trix Malone in 2013. The idea behind SECTUAL was for Trix to share her belongings with the world, making all her personal effects available for purchase. The idea eventually branched out into a message board community, which became its foundational goal.
Statement from Trix:
I believe that nothing truly belongs to us, and that rather than holding onto items, we should eventually let them find a new home.
