The Eco Fabric Boutique
Our impactful social enterprise program accepts more than 10,000 pounds of textiles per year, donated by our community and local businesses. We carry more than 200 rolls of top-notch quality fabric to choose from all sold at affordable prices. All proceeds go towards supporting our dual mission.
