Welcome to Our Social Fabric

OSF_logo copy transp back with green leafOur Social Fabric (OSF) is a non-profit textile recycling initiative that has been in operation since 2009 in Vancouver, BC. OSF is run by a small but passionate volunteer Board. 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 team of volunteers sort through the donations and offer them back to the community at drastically reduced prices. Our goal is to keep textiles out of the landfill and into the hands of creatives in our community. Revenue from the sale of textiles helps to pay for rent, utilities and one part-time employee. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all our wonderful customers, volunteers and donors for your amazing support – we couldn’t do it without you! Our next Sale Event is Thursday, April 11, 2:00 pm-8:00 pm

We’d love to hear from you – please complete this on-line Survey. The first 30 people to complete this survey will be granted early access to our next Sunday sale, on April 28, 2019. Please ensure that you bring government issued ID which matches the name you list in Question #1 and that the spelling is correct. If you make it on to the early access list, you will be notified by email ahead of time. The results from this survey will be used to service you better and help with the strategic planning of Our Social Fabric. Email us at oursocialfabric@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your time and continued support of Our Social Fabric!
