We receive donations of textiles, fabric and sewing related supplies from the film industry, theatre, manufacturing, estate closures together with home sewers and artists. Our mission is to divert textiles from the landfill and into the hands of creatives in our community

what our community has to say
My favorite place to buy fabrics is at Our Social Fabric! As a textile recycling initiative, OSF makes it possible for me to able to afford to buy fabrics to sew as much as I want, as well as to feel better about the sustainability of my sewing practice. I cannot recommend it enough!
Best wishes, CW
"My order arrived yesterday and was the highlight of my day. Really. Thank you for moving to online sales. Thank you for letting me be part of a great recycling endeavor. Thank you to everyone who volunteers to make good things happen. And a special thank you for the little extra tucked into the bag. The holiday ornament is lovely.
