Patch Your Shirt (or we can)


$ 0.00




Every now and then there is a problem with a shirt. The weaving has an imperfection, the sewing is a little off, your shirt gets a stain or you get caught on something that makes a hole. We don't want that to stop the shirt from having a long long life as a garment. 

Here are some options:

1:

We encourage you to patch your shirt. If you enjoy mending, or want to give it a try, send me an email hovdenffw@gmail.com and I can send you a matching or non-matching patch that you can use. Or use a fabric that you already have. You can hand stitch or use the machine. There is invisible mending and visible mending. Visible mending is becoming more and more popular. Instead of a hole or a stain devaluing the garment, visible mending will be part of that shirts story. By fixing a garment you pour more love into it, and hopefully it will be even more valuable to you. There is a lot of inspiration online for mending techniques. Especially in Japanese boro. 

2:

Find a local tailor and have them do it. Many dry cleaner also offer repair, and they are incredibly talented. They will do invisible mending, unless you ask for visible mending. 

3:

Send the garment back to us (or bring it to Scan Fair/Midsummer) and we will patch it and send it back to you. If a patched shirt is not your style, you will get a credit towards a new shirt if you send us the one that has an issue. We will sell your patched shirt to someone who loves a one-of-a-kind shirt. Send me an email and we'll figure out the details! hovdenffw@gmail.com
