Hope you are enjoying this amazing sunshine and warm temperatures in beautiful Vancouver! We are so excited to tell you about our latest gift – we have received a huge donation of high quality, brand name zippers in a rainbow of colours and we want to share them with you. We have so many zippers that we’ve created a FREE Zone at the front of the shop, just for you.
OSF’s goal, as a non-profit group, is to divert and recycle textiles and keep them out of the landfill – when we an abundance, we want give back and share with our community so, come and fill your bags with as many zippers as you can carry!
Ever wonder what the pros use in undergarments to add breathable stretch and comfort – it’s Power Mesh, and we have some! Power Mesh has a “tulle like” appearance and is soft, has 4 way stretch, great drape and excellent shape retention. This lightweight power shaper mesh is perfect for shape-wear, bra-making, lingerie, and lining garments for added support. Comes in Black, White and Nude colours.
Comes in nude and black – this interesting donation came from a company that makes bras, undergarments and postpartum wear. The elastic is strong and soft and looks similar to tensor bandage elastic – priced to sell!
