        Treasure Cart

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

        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.

        * Sold per 1 pound

        Our materials are new and unused and thanks to you, it will be diverted from the landfill and given a second chance to be lovingly made into a garment or a work of art.

        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.

        Specialty Fabrics: Silk, Wool, Embroidery

        Dry clean only.
