How Come You Offer Free Fabric Offcuts?
We stock 130 different customised fabrics, each with its own attributes and qualities. From natural textiles such as silk, linen and cotton to technical fabrics such as neoprene, our extensive selection of custom printed fabric has something for everyone. As you can imagine, with so many fabric orders coming in, there are bound to be a lot of factory fabric remnants. One of our main priorities at Bags of Love is to be as sustainable as possible and to reduce our impact on the environment by reducing our waste. This includes re-homing our beloved textiles wherever we can. Offering free fabric offcuts to our customers is one such way that we can do this (and you can help). When a fabric is cut to size for a customer, there will be some fabric scraps left over. Instead of throwing these away, we are now offering fabric scraps for free. That's right, free fabric scraps when you choose our 2kg Mixed Bag option.
We care about our impact at Bags of Love. That’s why, instead of carelessly generating waste and harming the environment, we’ve implemented creative practices to reduce waste in every part of production. Like these, the humble fabric remnants. Because we print, cut and sew your products to order, some fabric is always left over. But we don’t let it go to waste; we give it to you so you can create a new masterpiece with them.
This is part of our dedication to circular fashion, which ensures all fabric is fully used instead of being sent to landfills. And we don’t stop there. Most of our fabrics are sourced from the UK and EU and we aim to partner with ethical suppliers. Our ink is water-based and eco-friendly, so it doesn’t generate any toxic fumes or water waste. Our long-term goal is an ethical, eco-conscious supply chain and even more sustainable production model.
What Textiles Will I Get In My Bag?
We offer four different options for your scraps (please note that the 5kg and 1kg options incur a small uplift charge, this is to cover the additional postage costs) & could contain +/-10% in weight.
- Mixed bag - 2 kg (FREE)
- Mixed bag - 5 kg
- Cotton scraps/naturals bag - 1 kg
- Neoprene - 1 kg
Types of fabrics: The fun of the 2kg mixed bags of free fabric offcuts is that you don't know what you are going to get. Our 130 fabric selection features so many different kinds of textiles. Fleece and cotton blends are available, along with chiffon and chenille, and pretty much everything in between. From lacy textiles to waterproof, you can be sure of an interesting and exciting selection of polys. We also offer bags of natural cottons and silks, Neoprene, or larger versions of the mixed bag of polys, all for a small price uplift.
Colours: The majority of your free offcuts will be mostly white or cream, but these remnants may have the odd splash of colour or print which may include text or barcodes.
Sizes: With the free 2 kg bag, you will have enough scraps to create a whole host of craft projects. These offcuts will vary in size, you may receive some large pieces and some small pieces, as they are all packed at random. The coloured fabrics consist of mainly fleece fabric, often in blue, pink, cream and black - perfect for creating scarves gloves and blankets in the cold, winter months. This is not exclusively the case, and you may find other colours or materials in your mixed bag - it's like a lucky dip. For the cotton, linen fabric remnants, and silk fabric remnants options, scraps tend to be long and thin.
Are There Any Limitations?
Please note that our factory fabric remnants are limited to a maximum of 1x bag per order (this is due to delivery costs). If you would like two or more bags, feel free to place another order for extra bags. If you order more than 1x bag in a single order, we will contact you regarding an extra delivery charge.
Delivery Charge: We charge you the amount that the carrier charges us for delivery - we do not make a profit on this; it's part of our mission to become fabric waste neutral. We prefer you to have it to use creatively rather than wasted. We can only ship free fabric offcuts within the UK. If orders are placed for shipping outside of the UK then your payment will be automatically refunded to you, and the remnants will not be sent.
