Repair, make, mend by Hikaru Noguchi

Book Description

Climate change is making us rethink how we use resources and not subscribing to fast-fashion and re-using and mending our clothes has become a mark of pride. This is visible mending, more akin to embroidery and embellishment that will make your favourite clothing even more personal and save it from landfill. This is the first UK edition of the cult darning book by Hikaru Noguchi who has become a guru of visible darning in Japan. This detailed step-by-step guide makes the methods easy to follow even for non-sewers. The stylish photography shows off the artistic and minimalist style of the designer’s work.
