Short Interview for NYC Textile Week

 "Waste Not, Want Not: FABSCRAP Founder Jessica Schreiber on Reusing and Recycling"


Texworld: Who can benefit from FABSCRAP?

Jessica: For the recyclers, I would like to be able to provide service during both the design and production processes. Hopefully they can redirect all requests for excess fabric to FABSCRAP, which can provide a selection of reusable fabric from numerous companies at once. For the reusers, I would like to not only provide fabric in a sustainable manner, but create stories around the awesome, innovative projects happening in New York City. For both groups, I hope I’m a resource for information and data on commercial textile waste and creating transparency around the current challenges, exploring all potential solutions. In the next few years I would love to develop FABSCRAP in Los Angeles, where there is also a hub of design, manufacturing and artisans.

Doesn't the new site look, well, FAB? 

Our biggest thanks to Carol Han. You can check out her work here>>.

Carol was so great to work with! She was dependable and organized, with great insight into user experience and design, and she kept us on track and focused. She really took the time to understand our brand and our goals. We couldn't be happier with the finished product.
