We started Fabric to grow the social fabric, one in-person conversation at a time.
Our world is more interconnected digitally but more disconnected socially than ever before. Everywhere, social division is growing, loneliness is spreading, and anxiety is rising. Our social fabric is threadbare.
Fabric turns our phones from walls into windows, revealing the thoughts of the people around us, and inviting infinite possibilities for conversation and connection right where we are.
The more we use Fabric, the more we talk; the more we talk,the more we laugh; the more we laugh, the more we trust; the more we trust, the more good we can do together.
Fabric can turn a room full of strangers into a room full of people who share common threads. With Fabric, our daily routines can spark ever changing possibilities for conversation and connection. Fabric makes any place a meeting place and even a public square. With Fabric, we can meet the abundance of human kindness and imagination, and we might just come to trust there is always more than enough to go around.
At Fabric, we create moments where we are. We look forward to being part of yours.
The future is looking up!
