Second hand fabrics and patterns
Exclusively at the store you can find a collection of second hand fabrics and patterns. These are selected second hand fabrics and patterns - either from private sources or samples from fashion companies. The collections are compiled according to the season and thematically. The prices normally range between CHF 5.- and 15.-/m. We donate 100% of the proceeds from second hand sales to Fashion Revolution Switzerland.
