Supplies: Our Social Fabric

Our Social Fabric (OSF) is a kewl and awesome non-profit group in Vancouver. OSF helps recycle excess fabric from manufacturers, the movie industry and more. Through monthly sales, they put the fabric into the hands of creators in our community while helping divert still-functional textiles from landfills. Here’s an eye opening stat…

Textiles are one the most common household items and represent a staggering proportion of the solid wastestream: approximately 16kg per person, or a total of 33,600 tonnes in Metro Vancouver in 2006.

OSF moved into a new store space at 340 – 1275 Venables Street and it is filled with fabulous fabrics rescued from the landfill. It’s a bright space filled with awesomeness…

The walls and bins are brimming with fabric…

You can find just about anything at OSF…

Loads of spools of thread. Sometimes you luck out with vintage finds… Thread on wooden spools. Perfect for upcycling once you’ve finished with the thread!

Tons of old gently used patterns to try out.

The walls are filled with FAB upcycling inspiration like these burlap canvases with button letters.

If you’re a sewer, maker and/or upcycler ya gotta drop by Our Social Fabric. Their sales are a win-win – great prices, one-of-a-kind finds and they do good.
