Volunteer for fabric

Help us at our Fabric Sort days by helping us arrange the tonnes of fabric we receive. Learn about textiles while meeting others. For every 4 hours of sorting, you take home 1 bag of textiles. Scroll down to book a slot. 

Fabric Sort days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. 

Come to a fabric swap

De clutter your textiles cupboard (or room) by bringing your unwanted textiles and swapping them with something else. If you’ve realised you’re never going to use that piece of material, we have a group of people who would find use in it.  

We host monthly swaps and bigger events seasonally. 

Book a visit

Come in visit us at our Space in Bermondsey to view a selection of our fabrics. We have odd bits, scraps and rolls. Let us know more about your project when booking a slot to visit so we can bring out what you need. 

Workshops & Events

From workshops, to masterclasses and talks, we have a bunch of events for textile lovers and curious makers, conscious brains and slow fashion promoters. Browse through our latest events.

Talk to us about collaborations. events. ideas. education programmes.

Are you looking for ways to create open conversations about textile waste or rethinking the way you manage waste? Let’s talks. We work with primary and secondary school’s, universities, community spaces and other interested groups in creating engaging, fun and guilt free ways to play with textiles and create awareness on the impact of textile waste.
