Studio Mend’s main aim is to place the potential of repair back in peoples awareness. Spreading the knowledge on how to repair your garments has become increasingly important to Sunniva, the founder of Studio Mend. As hosting workshops has been difficult over the last year, Sunniva created a repair kit with instructions as an alternative way of teaching mending to whoever wishes to learn.
The repair kit contains a step by step instructional booklet (with photos and text) on how to learn the Island Weave repair technique, which is a variation of darning. Additionally you get some tips on how to use colour and shape in visible mending, and how to take care of your garments. You will get a thin needle which is ideal for finer textiles, a 12,5 cm embroidery ring, and different coloured cotton yarn to get you started in some of Sunniva’s favourite repair colours. You can choose between four different «colour sets», which comes with mock up colour-swatches similar to the one’s s Sunniva uses herself, which you can cut out and use to check which colours fit your garment the best.
The Island Weave is a useful repair technique based on darning which works really well on denser textiles. It’s the perfect technique for for covering up stains on your favourite pair of jeans, or repairing holes on your cashmere sweater - even on areas which require some flexibility (like an elbow). It can also be used to mend a precious woollen blanket or a beautiful old kitchen towel you don’t have the heart to throw away.
