Either way you have come to the right place. Produce your high quality textile products with Social Fabric and share a story of positive ecological and social impact with your customers.

 

 

Upcycled corporate gifts

 

Corporate gifts are a great way to share your company’s values with your customers and employees. Social Fabric specialises in upcycling used advertising materials (e.g. banner flags, other fabrics), and turns them into high quality design merchandise. By choosing to produce your company’s gifts with us, you can show your commitment to a sustainable future, circular mindset and social inclusion. 

 

All products are developed locally, transparently and ethically in our well-equipped sewing atelier in Zürich Binz. Please see below how we create positive social impact.

Positive social impact

How do we create a positive social impact? In our sewing atelier in Zürich Binz, we offer work integration positions to tailors with refugee backgrounds. By placing an order with us, you enable us to create education and work integration opportunities for refugees in Switzerland. For printed goods, we collaborate with social enterprise Freeset, who empowers women and their families in India by training and employing former sex workers in Calcutta.

 

Ecologically sustainable

We care about our environment and our planet’s future. All our products are made locally, transparently and sustainably. When sourcing materials, we choose the options with the highest quality and smallest ecological footprint – produced in ethical working conditions. Additionally, we use upcycling to reduce textile waste and to promote circular economy. 

Quotes from our previous customers:

“Social Fabric helped me to assess what would be the best project for the material we wanted to recycle and made the whole process really easy for us. Having pencil cases upcycled from our own old plastic banner flags, it provided us with give-aways for our clients with a story. Another advantage was to display our commitment to sustainability.”

“With Social Fabric we found a great alternative to the usual options available for belly dance hip scarves. Social Fabric helped us develop the product with different prototypes and made suggestions for sustainable fabric that would move well and be light and breathable enough to use whilst dancing. From the initial idea to the final product, everything ran smoothly and we’ve come back a couple of times to order more. Our students love the hip scarves as well, as also the philosophy behind Social Fabric, which they said was also important for them in their decision to purchase the product.”
