We are a community based organisation that supports the use of textiles and clothing that have a small ecological and social footprint. We sell a small assortment of sustainably-made textiles, we provide sewing classes and community events, and we offer a program (project ReThread) that aims to empower refugees in the local community.
We have a hybrid legal structure; Social Fabric GmbH oversees all of our revenue generating activities, including our classes and our textile sales. Social Fabric Association is a tax exempt non-profit association that is overseen by a board of directors, and manages all of our work with refugees.
Our Values and Our Mission
Social Fabric started small, but aims to have a big impact. We are building a sustainable textile hub in Zürich, where individuals and small designers can come to access knowledge, facilities, equipment, and materials that have a positive impact. We are aiming to do this because the textile and clothing industries are among the dirtiest and least socially responsible industries in the world. We want to take a community approach to solving this problem by pooling the creativity of our members, in order to develop solutions that work locally. We aim to scale this idea to other cities internationally, and to re-invent the fashion industry supply chain.
