FABSCRAP is a non-profit recycling fabric scraps from design and fashion companies in NYC and creating opportunities for reuse. They endeavor to end commercial textile “waste” and maximize the value of unused fabric.
Both their Brooklyn and Philadelphia Warehouses have reopened and FABSCRAP is jumping back into what they do best - keeping fabric from landfills. We come to you! FABSCRAP will pickup your fabric scraps as soon as possible. We aim to create the most efficient routes, so we typically schedule multiple pickups per day. Pickups routes are created every FRIDAY for the following week.If you're Looking for a sustainable jumpstart to the New Year come volunteer with us to support an organization that you love, sign up to volunteer and sort fabric. You’ll get an inside look into our recycling process learn more about textiles and fibers, and meet other like minded individuals in the community. As a thank you for your time each volunteer gets to take home 5lbs of fabric. Every three months, FABSCRAP highlights an artist or designer who utilizes textile waste in their work, and who serves as an example within their community of not only sourcing more sustainably, but also how to manipulate textile waste into something new and beautiful using their specific talent and skill set. Julie Woodard of Juicebox Workshop is Philly's featured fabric artist. Students, artists, crafters, quilters, sewers, teachers, and of course, other designers can use any material we collect that is not proprietary. Make an appointment to come to the warehouse to "shop" the scraps. Some larger pieces and Scrap Packs of smaller pieces, organized by color, are sold through our online store.
