The Sewist Society is a textile recycling nonprofit with a three-prong approach to reducing the amount of textile waste generated. TSS addresses the intersection of textiles waste, women’s rights, craft, and how they all affect the environment.
At The Sewist Society, we aim to find solutions to the systemic problem of textile waste and overconsumption. We honor the life cycle of the fabric, from the seed, to the thread, to the cloth, to the garment, and all the hands that made it. We believe that through awareness and education, we can redefine our relationship to textiles and grow a future that sustains us all.
The Sewist Society is a non-profit organization funded by the community for the community. All donations raised and received go toward reducing our textile waste, creating jobs, and conducting research on pathways to a greener community.
If you, your organization, or anyone you know would like to get involved, you can visit our website at www.thesewistsociety.org or call us at (813) 421-3819.
