ECOEQUITABLE is a non-profit organization based in Ottawa. One of our main social programs is to take clean and unsewn fabric donations, either pre-cut pieces or rolls, and divert them from landfills.
We strongly believe in repurposing materials that might be otherwise sent to landfills. Future generations deserve a planet that is healthy and teeming with life.
We trust that our efforts will help to minimize the hundreds of millions of pounds of textile waste that wind up in landfills each year.
We not only help the environment with this initiative, but we also benefit our community by providing our "Sewing for Jobs" students with all the materials they need for their sewing training, and we also offer our community an alternative to get standard and premium fabrics at discounted prices.
The purpose of having a brick and mortar Fabric Store is to offer an inclusive and welcoming physical place for anyone who has a passion for sewing, fashion, or is interested in immersing themselves in this beautiful and creative world of sewing!
ONLINE (PICK UP ONLY)
We also have an online store in which you can get exclusive premium fabrics as well as brand new notions and sewing supplies.
If you are an entrepreneur-home-seamstress, hobby sewist, or a fashion design student, visit our store, we are sure you'll find all you need and more!
All our fabrics and sewing supplies are donated by home sewers and local businesses. Our aim is to keep textiles out of the landfill by putting them in the hands of enthusiastic and creative sewists in our community who will repurpose them.
