A handbook for repairing and caring for your clothes.
Learn the art and craft of mending, a powerful skill of restoration for the clothes and belongings we love.
‘Mending Life’ is a beautifully illustrated handbook that will show you how to mend jeans, socks, sweaters, down jackets, leggings and other common repairs. It is a book to cherish which encourages us to care for our things by repairing them rather than discarding them.
