Got scrap textiles?

Let’s make sure leftovers from manufacturing facilities, upholstery businesses, billboards, and banners don’t end up in the landfill. We’re here to reimagine and repurpose your leftover textiles.

Materials We Can Upcycle

Materials We Can Upcycle:

  • Nylon
  • 3D Knit
  • Wool
  • Leather
  • Upholstery Fabric
  • Seatbelts
  • Apparel Textiles
  • Zippers
  • Straps
  • Cones of thread in every color

What We Need: Quantity

Contributions should measure a minimum of 3 yards each or enough to make 50 upcycled items. As for maximums, we have none! We’ll take as much material as you can bring us.

What We Need: Quality

We want our products to represent the best of what’s possible when we work together to live sustainably. So, we’re looking for high quality materials. When you bring in textiles, a Public Thread team member will help evaluate if your contribution can be upcycled. 

A Few Tips:

  • Rolls of textile are preferred over loose scraps
  • Materials must be high-quality and sturdy, with plenty of life left them
  • Please no used clothing, old or stained fabrics, or materials that we are unable to repurpose
