SCRAP is located in the Bayview district of San Francisco in an SFUSD warehouse. You never know what you’ll find to inspire your next project or finish off your current one. The materials in our depot change every day, but you’ll always find an abundance of “art parts,” a wide variety of artifacts of inspiring textures, colors, and shapes.

The warehouse is loosely organized by type of material: wood, metal, glass, fabric, paper, images, plastic, natural materials, beads & buttons, arts & crafts, toys, and more. A section of the warehouse contains free materials, and the rest are available at low cost. Proceeds of sales from the depot keep SCRAP going—offering free materials pick-ups, low-cost workshops, school field trips, and more.

    Hello , I read online that scrap will sell cotton scrap fabric for something like 10.00 a bundle/bag, is that true? and if so, are there any restrictions or certain times/days that it is sold or available?

    You don’t say what sort of projector you need. We have several slide and opaque projectors. Come by and see if any fit your requirements.

    Thanks for thinking of SCRAP.

    Thanks for thinking of SCRAP.

    Sorry, we are unable to accept unusable clothing, sheets, towels at this time. We are actively seeking solutions to textile recycling, but haven’t found them yet.

    Hello Humayra,

    I asked around, and no one here knows what “technical fabric” is. So we may have some. Or maybe not.

    We do have, literally, tons of fabric in great variety of fibers, natural and artificial. I recommend a vist so you can see for yourself. We are open for shopping Monday through Friday 20 to 6, Saturdays, 10 to 5.

    Thanks for thinking of SCRAP.

    My name is Humayra & I am a student of the Academy Of Art University, San Francisco. I was wondering if you carry technical fabrics. I need fabrics (in any fiber composition), which is wrinkle-free, easy-dry & spill-free. Can you help me regarding this? Thanks a lot & I’ll be waiting for a reply.
