Visible Mending as an art form.

Visible Mending as an Artform | More than 30% of the UKs unwanted clothing currently goes to landfill. If we were to only buy the clothes we need and wear them to their near death, we could significantly reduce the amount that is sent to landfill. Here a lovely tutorial showing how to mend clothes, making those sightly holes beautiful and your favourite clothes wearable once again.

This is connected to the Boro clothing style, in which clothing is patched and repaired to extend its life in an artistic way. Inspiring!
