Our Social Fabric (OSF) is a textile recycling initiative that has been in operation since 2009. In October 2015 we closed our storefront on Hastings Street and prepared to re-locate with our non-profit partners, Common Thread and Craftworks.
OSF receives donations of textiles, fabric left and sewing related supplies from the film industry, theatre, manufacturing, estate closures together with home sewers and artists. Our team of volunteers sort through the donations and offer them back to the community at drastically reduced prices. Our goal is to keep textiles out of the landfill and into the hands of crafters, sewers and artists in our community.
