Synopsis

We all have that favourite pair of jeans or even lucky socks that we treasure, 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 Khounnraj explores why we should mend, and how to mend a variety of different fabrics. Work through the book to discover how to repair forgotten pieces and give worn-out clothes a new life. Today, mending has become an extension to making. Mending is about returning value to something, an opportunity to decorate, emphasize details and express identity by repurposing and reusing.
 
Illustrated step-by-step instructions will demystify mending techniques that can be easily applied to old items to give them a fresh, modern look. Each of the projects examine how to repair, reuse and renew the clothes you love, from patching jeans, embroidering over tears to dyeing to hide stains and using the Japanese art of Sashiko. Visible Mending is for those who want to learn how to make the most of their wardrobes, be less wasteful, more sustainable and add a personal touch to their garments.
