Your Bag Of Free Fabric Remnants
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 free of charge.
All the bags can be delivered to your door (within the UK only) for a small postage charge. We always strive for sustainability, and hope that by offering our creative customers the chance to own a bag of fabric scraps, that we are continuing our mission to decrease fabric waste.
What Do The Bags Of Free Fabric Scraps Contain?
We now offer four different options for your free fabric scraps. The larger bag incurs a small uplift charge to cover the extra cost of delivery.
- 1.5 kg mixed bag
- 4.5 kg mixed bag
- 450 g cotton/naturals bag
- 0.75 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 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. Natural fabric remnants 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 customise 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 Free Bag Of Fabric Remnants?
There are so many possibilities, all it takes is your creativity. Our customers have used their free fabric scarps 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.

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.

Lovely quality . Brilliant service fabric arrived with in three days......
Parcel has been sent and arrived quickly, got lovely big pieces of fabrics, thank you very much. Definitely will get some more later
Surprised by the huge amount of fabric in large bundle. Some of it will take some thought as to the use if it as unusual fabrics but still pleased. All of good quality materials. Extremely speedy delivery.
had the large pack very pleased
First I was shocked why I got two big pieces of white cotton material. I think I expected different colours. But material is great and actually having Xmas behind the doors I got plenty of ideas how to use those remnants.
Fantastic service. Large selection of different fabrics so many projects in mind now. All neatly folded and packaged well. Thank you I'm on benefits so I can make so many gifts for family and friend for next year and not end up In debt .
The fabric came in large pieces, so was very usable. The fabric had little to no faults. I liked the wide range and that they were usable
The quality was excellent, 3 large swatches in varying fabrics. They were however, all white, apart from a tiny bit of sample coding. Nothing can really be done but i was expecting some splashes of colour.
mixtures of heavyweight canvas type, some synthetic satin, poly cottons and a stretch jersey type. I'll need to work out how to colour the synthetics but I'm sure our not for profit organisation will be able to make use of them.
All good, happy with fabric, would of preferred a smaller mix rather than a mix of smaller pieces and one big piece of the same fabric. Plus the large piece of fabric is something I am not sure I can use, as it is heavy canvass. I am into helping the planet and feel I should not throw this away! But dont really have a need for this? I make eco friendly items using lighter fabrics
Everything was more then I expected, fabrics we're good quality and reasonable sizes, thank you.
Very happy with both items I purchased.first order was small bag mixed fabric postage was £5.50 I think.the fabrics much bigger pieces and lots of it so I ordered the larger mixed bag and am still amazed on what I received.quality fabric.very happy as I sew an assortment of things was this was perfect for me.thank you x
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 4.5 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. The only small charge comes to have your bag delivered to you. This will be a standard postage cost.
