Get Free Scraps
Regular price $0.00 CAD
We're collecting fabric scraps from Vancouver apparel manufacturers and we have production offcuts, swatches, and other wonderful textures and colours of fabrics for you to play with.
How It Works
The scraps are free (we cover the cost of labour) but you'll have to cover shipping or come pick up the scraps from our Vancouver based ReUSE Centre. However, if you choose to pick up the scraps from our ReUSE Centre, you will get to pick out the materials yourself!
What You Get
The scraps come in various sizes, some are as small as 2cm or so and some are much larger and could come in uneven cuts.
Unfortunately, we're not able to guarantee which scrap sizes you'll receive but for every scrap bag or box we make, we try to add a good mix of various sizes and textures so you have a selection of materials.
What To Do With Them
The scraps are great for makers that can work with small sizes of fabric pieces or if you need materials for stuffing for example.
For larger pieces, please see our Treasure Cart fabrics.
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 a continuous 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.
