Our Social Fabric (OSF) is Vancouver’s only 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 mission is to divert textiles from the landfill and into the hands of creatives in our community. Here's what one of our customers said:
"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 endeavour. 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.
Best wishes, CW"
