Textiles - Good Condition/Size

Textiles are fabrics used for clothing, covering, upholstering, etc, and made from natural and synthetic materials.

Textiles include bolts, large swaths, yardage of fabric, leather, or textiles for upholstery, quilting, clothing, sewing projects, that can be reused by an individual or business.

Consider reuse and donation for intact, unstained, and clean textiles. For poor condition textiles, choose repair, and stain removal (clothinglinensfurniture fabric/ shoes) before donating to an organization that has reuse and/or rag and textile shredding capactity. Scrap fabric? Consider tiny projects.
