      Treasure Cart

      If you've visited our ReUSE Centre in Vancouver, you surely seen the big wooden cart (aka "Treasure Cart") filled with fabrics and other strange and wonderful things.

      The fabrics on the Treasure Cart are special.

      When we collect the fabric scraps and offcuts from our business partners (fashion designers and factories), we manually sort and choose which pieces we think can be reused by other creatives. It's slow and laborious work but it allows us to dream how these beautiful fabrics can be used by someone else, instead of becoming waste.

      With time, we accumulated quite a lot of these beautiful fabrics and it's time to find them a new home.

      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.

       

      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

      Dry clean only.
