Our materials have been collected from the Vancouver apparel industry and are considered to be dead-stock. These notions are new and unused, and thanks to you, it will be diverted from the landfill and given a second chance.

What is a Bundle?
A bundle is a pre-cut fabric that comes as is. Often, it is a unique piece of fabric that we only have one size of.
What is a Roll?
Our fabric is sold in units of 1/2 Meter (50cm) increments.
When you choose to purchase 3 units (of 1/2 meter) for example, we'll cut 1.5 metres of acontinuous cut.
How do we know what's the fabric content?
Our fabric is collected from industry partners and community members, so we often don't receive any information on the fabric content. However, our team of fabric specialists make an effort to best identify the fabric we receive through using the burn test method and relying on their accumulated textile expertise. For this reason, all fabric content is listed as estimated unless the content is specifically stated with percentages.
If you've found an error on the listed fibre content, please give us a shout so we can look into it promptly and correct it if needed.
Natural & Synthetic Blends
Since we don't know the exact fabric content of the textile, it would be safe to wash in cold and gentle wash. You can always wash a sample piece before using the final textile on your product. Hand or machine wash cold with similar colours, hang to dry, iron low temperature.
Specialty Fabrics: Silk, Wool, Embroidery
