Textile waste

Most of our fabric scraps go to a family owned business here in New Zealand called, Textile Products. They're amazing in what they do; capable of recycling any type of textile waste with the intent to have zero textile waste sent to landfill. Know that what you purchase here, contributes to that intention. They turn our excess into products like; wall insulation and lining, lofted wadding, and floor underlay - all using recycled materials.  

What Textile Products don't receive from us, we turn into garment dust bags that come with every order - dependent on the availability of excess fabric.
