Fabric Donation for a Good Cause

09-08-2022   


Leftover fabric scraps from our Factory and FCFabric Studio are always put to good use; from practice swatches for our FTA learners to designers wanting to recreate the materials into something new.

Now we are regularly donating our leftover fabric to the Kurdish Women Organization, Roj, a non-profit charity that aims to improve the life of Kurdish and Turkish Women living in North London. The charity runs a textile project in Woodgreen, with the aim to train socially isolated Kurdish and Turkish women to learn new skills such as sewing, pattern making, and learning English while they are working.

The charity comments:

“Roj Women Organisation is a grass root Kurdish Women organization, a non-profit charity that aims to improve the life of Kurdish and Turkish Women living in North London.  The Organisation is based in Haringey; it provides advice and advocacy to Kurdish and Turkish women living in four North London Boroughs, Islington, Hackney, Enfield, and Haringey. 

 “Our textile project is based at Chocolate Factory in Woodgreen, its aim is to help train socially isolated Kurdish and Turkish women to learn new skills such as sewing, pattern making, and learning English while they are working.  We are a small grass root charity with very limited resources and the textile project is constantly in need of fabrics and other materials. We very much appreciate FCFabric Studio for their kind fabric donations, we look forward to growing our relationship with ongoing projects.”  

Maisie from the FCFabric Studio added:

“We are so pleased we can help and support the women of Roj Women Association. Our whole ethos at FashionCapital is to be the best we can as often as we can. We pride ourselves on having a strong social conscience and with Roj Women being within our community it makes it that bit more special. Wishing all the lovely ladies the very best in the future and we look forward to seeing their resulting creations!”
