PreFab Clothing is a unique 1950s themed charity shop and recycling project based in Cardiff.
We love fashion but hate waste and strongly believe in recycling and up-cycling in order to reduce the amount of textiles going to landfill and help safeguard the environment.
We process and recondition donated, pre-loved clothing and accessories of good quality
for re-sale at affordable prices at our shop at 73 Albany Road.
Up-cycling and creating new products is a big part of the project, and many unwanted items are given new life and transformed into fabulous hand-made goods.
And if that wasn’t good enough, all income generated by PreFab is directly reinvested into the project and into services for homeless people at the Cardiff’s YMCA Housing Association.
Prefab also provides valuable work experience and accredited training in recycling and retail to the YMCA’s homeless service users at its hostel and will provide volunteering opportunities to the local community.
