What Do The Bags Of Fabric Remnants Contain?
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 London warehouse. With so many different types of textile, 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 free bag. Most of the offcuts will have a white or cream base tone, but you could also receive a bundle with some colourful prints thrown in, some text or even a bar code. Our coloured fabrics consist mainly of blue, cream, pink and black fleece, however this is not exclusively the case. These remnants are perfect for making warm winter garments and accessories for the cold months.

There are so many possibilities, all it takes is your creativity. Our customers have used their upholstery fabric offcuts for a whole range of end uses.

I've ordered the naturals bundle. Someone in the company must have read my mind because it contained a piece of light cream cotton lawn perfect for my new project.
The fabrics were pristine, carefully packaged and remnants were of a decent size. I am extremely pleased with the level of service and met a very courteous staff member upon arrival. I would rate my experience 10/10.
It arrived promptly the quality is great will be buying again
I was so pleased with the fabric , this is such a great idea , I’ve already started using the fabric to make a table mat , I am also going to try my hand at printing on fabric to make cushions . I was so pleased with what I got that I ordered the 5 kg and that was amazing as well , I’m going to be sooo busy .
I received a package of different white materials my fave was a beautiful velvet type fabric there was quite a big piece of that ! I will be able to make good use of these scraps
Not had a chance to look at it properly as been in hospital but did have a quick look and see that there was a nice big piece of white fabric and smaller bits.
The quality of the product is excellent the service was outstanding and the experience was altogether very good
Great amount of really useful pieces
Well pleased with variety of fabrics in parcel. Wedding dress heavy cloth and variety of other stuff, good lengths all useful.
Easy to order and the parcel was delivered quickly. Great mix of fabrics, mainly synthetics and either white or cream coloured as expected - now to plan my projects. 5 kilo is a lot of fabric! But lots of big pieces to line bags or hats etc . Thank you
I recently became aware of your company and the fact that you are happy sending waste fabric out to those who request it and am more than happy with what I received - I am a patchwork tutor and will be looking at ways to dye the fabric to use in my work
Frequently asked questions:
What can I expect to find in my bag of remnants? These scraps come from the fabric rolls in our warehouse. Some are offcuts from other orders, some are end of the line rolls, and some just (pardon the pun) didn't make the cut. When you open your bag, you can expect to find a wide range of offcuts, including woven, knitted, organic, natural, man made and so many more.
What will the fabric scraps look like? Every bag of upholstery fabric remnants contains up to 5 kg of textile scraps. These scraps are mainly white or cream, but there is usually a dash of colour or print thrown into the mix too. This is somewhat of a mystery bag, as the free fabric scraps UK made you receive can be anything from cotton and silk to tulle and chiffon.
Are these fabric offcuts free?Yes they are! If you want to purchase a bag of upholstery fabric offcuts from Contrado, it is totally free to do so. A bag of offcuts for free is a brilliant deal.
