The fabric society specializes in environmental and cultural sustainability. It is our passionate purpose and Mission. We have been a part of the slow textile movement for several years. Beginning with the opening of Ambatalia fabrics in 2004, probably the first fabric store focusing on sustainable fabrics. We closed in November 2008, only growing a deeper understanding of what sustainability means. We consider our selvs artist born in using what is already here on this planet. There are many colors of sustainability. We use vintage or reclaimed fabric, organically grown cottons and hemp to name a few. We also find it very important to support artisans around the world that have been weaving textiles for generations and we equally support fair trade. Sometimes those fabrics are not certified organic. We will always be honest about where the fabric comes from and what we know about it and who made it. We also use packaging out of post consumer paper or reclaimed paper. Please feel free to contact us for with any questions you might have. Textiles are not the only thing we do. Please check out our blog connecting you to local and international groups and movements for a greener future. We also share our inspiration in design as well. Much love, Molly and Kate

The vintage fabric is special and old. I will only use vintage fabric that I think is sturdy and only of the best quality. The truth is, because of its age, please be gentle with it. Hand wash and use the line to dry.
Please convo me if you need your item by a certain date. Because of the holidays, I am very busy. It could take up to a week to get your order. If that is a problem let me know and I will do my best to get it out.
