The Sewist Society
sustainable home and personal accessories
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.
Education and Skill share
The Sewist Society will bring awareness and spotlight sewing as a skill/trade that we need to value again. We will uplift sewing and seamstresses and bring attention to the gender and class issue that has become embedded in the current sewing factory culture, as well.
When you purchase from The Sewist Society, you are supporting artists and artisans, while diverting fabric waste from our landfills.
“I am certain that a Sewing Machine would relieve as much human suffering as a hundred Lunatic Asylums, and possibly a good deal more.”
