Visible mending Repair, renew, reuse the clothes you love

Arounna Khounnoraj

Book - 2020

We all have that favorite pair of jeans -- no matter how baggy or worn they might become. In the movement against throw-away culture and fast fashion, learn how to pick up a needle and rediscover the forgotten techniques and the joy of mending. In Visible Mending, Arounna explores why we should mend, and how to mend a variety of different fabrics. Work through the illustrated step-by-step instructions that will demystify mending techniques and discover how these can be easily applied to old items to give them a fresh, modern look. Packed with skill-based projects, this book reveals how to patch jeans, embroider over tears, dye stains and use the Japanese art of Sashiko. Visible Mending is a book for those who want to learn how to make the m...ost of their wardrobes, be less wasteful, more sustainable and add a personal touch to their garments.
