Rescuing Designer Materials
for Creative Reuse


FabMo - your source for exquisite rescued designer materials

Whether you work in textiles, tile, leather or paper, come to FabMo, find your treasures, and keep valuable materials out of the landfill.

Every year FabMo rescues approximately 70 tons of discontinued designer samples such as fabric, wallpaper, tile, and carpet and makes them available to the creative community for reuse.

Goods are available at monthly Selection Events and Special Sales at our facility in Mountain View, and periodically at satellite events in Santa Cruz and elsewhere. In addition, we host meet-ups and workshops, where you can learn new skills and meet like-minded creators.

You will also find us out in the community promoting creative reuse at events such as Earth Day, the San Mateo County Fair, Maker Faire, and more.

Find out how to get in on the fun!
