Friday, 04 June 2010

Looking for fabrics for your next fashion piece or home accessory? This Saturday in Vancouver, Our Social Fabric, is having a fabric sale from 10am-3pm at 33 Commercial, unit 4061, corner of Powell and Commercial, Maple Leaf Storage facility. Shop for fabric, notions, new on bolts, pre cut pieces, clothing from movies and tv shows in cottons, silks and wool with prices ranging from CAD $2-8 /meter.

Run by Kim Cathers, Our Social Fabric is a group of individuals working to establish a viable, socially responsible non-profit organization in Vancouver’s downtown east side community. Their focus is to specialize in textile collection, recycling and re-manufacturing, while providing employment and social reintegration opportunities for residents of our community.

Textiles are one the most common household items and represent a staggering proportion of the solid waste stream: approximately 16kg per person, or a total of 33,600 tonnes in Metro Vancouver in 2006. Support Our Social Fabric in a more sustainable use of fabrics and drop by tomorrow!
