ECO-SEWING RESOURCES

We have put together this list of suppliers who sell sustainable sewing essentials, fabrics and haberdashery. We will be updating the list as we find more suppliers. If you have more suggestions please email WeAreCiTEA@gmail.com with your recommendations. 

We also highly recommend taking a read of Sinéad Kidao's The Costume Directory - a fantastically researched directory that can help to connect people to sustainable suppliers.
