Your Bag Of Remnants of Fabric
Repurposing fabric from other sources can not only make your project look better, but you are helping the environment by reducing waste. This is something we advocate strongly, which is why we are now offering fabric scraps.
At Contrado, our goal is to reduce waste in every aspect of production. That’s why we recycle as many materials as we can, including our fabric cut-offs. We know that in landfills, the fabric takes a long time to decompose and emits harmful gases into the atmosphere. So instead of throwing them away, we send them to you, our fellow eco-warriors, who give them a brand-new life. This is part of our commitment to circular fashion, ensuring that nothing goes to waste.
Our low-waste production model is completely unique, and it doesn’t stop at fabric. We print with eco-friendly, water-based inks that don’t produce any VOC, ink, or water waste. We source our raw materials from the UK and EU when possible. We’re committed to an ethical supply chain and sustainable production on every level.
All the bags can be delivered to your door for a small postage charge. We always strive for sustainability and hope that by offering our creative customers the chance to buy fabric scraps online, that we are continuing our mission to decrease fabric waste.
What Do The Bags Of Fabric Scraps Contain?
We now offer four different options for your fabric scraps.
- 4.4 lbs (2 kg) mixed bag
- 11 lbs (5 kg) mixed bag
- 2.2 lbs (1 kg) cotton/naturals bag
- 2.2 lbs (1 kg) neoprene (black only)
Every bag is filled with fabric offcuts, which will vary in size from small to large, and are packed at random. These offcuts come from the rolls of fabric in our warehouse. With so many different types of textiles, you can never be sure of what your bag will contain - which just adds to the excitement. The mixture of scraps could include silk, fleece, twill, muslin, lace, jersey, scuba, denim, neoprene, lace, Panama, leather and so much more. Our fabrics also range from organic and natural to waterproof, stretch, knitted, and woven. Whatever fabrics are being used at the time will end up in your bag. Most of the offcuts will have a white or cream base tone, but you could also receive a bundle with some colorful prints thrown in, some text, or even a bar code. Our colored fabrics consist mainly of blue, cream, pink and black fleece, however, this is not exclusively the case. Natural remnants of fabric tend to be long and thin.
Please note: Each bag of remnants is packed randomly using whatever fabrics are available at the time - you cannot customize your fabric scraps. The bags consist of a lucky dip of mixed content. Bags may be + or - 10% weights.

What Can I Do With My Remnants Of Fabric?
There are so many possibilities, all it takes is your creativity. Our customers have used their fabric scraps for a whole range of end uses. Fun and practical DIY projects using these scraps are the perfect way to repurpose textiles as well as creating something that you can use in your everyday life. As the offcuts are mainly white, you can use dyes, paints, and ink to add your preference of color. Just experiment with what looks best for your end-users and have fun getting creative with color.
Scraps are the best material to use to make patchwork projects. Design your very own patchwork blanket, cushion, scarf, or anything else you want. The mix of textures, weights, constructions, and base tones will lead to a beautiful finished result.
The fleece remnants are perfect for making warm winter garments and accessories for the cold months.
You can also use fabric scraps to learn how to make your own DIY prints at home. Check out our transfer paper, upload your design, and use your remnants of fabric to get practicing.
