Smaller holes are normally darned by hand, just like your grannie used to do with her socks. The smaller the hole the less likely the repair will be visible. Larger repairs will likely leave scars, but thankfully, scars are perennially cool.
More serious repairs like rips and tears can only be patched. The result is visible but beautiful, much like the Japanese art of 'kintsugi' where pottery is repaired with gold leaf and is considered even more beautiful than the original. We couldn't agree more!
In Australia we send ~23 kg of textile waste to landfill every single year per person on average. This is the second highest rate in the world, after the USA and we all have a moral obligation to reduce this waste as a result.
There's around 2,700 litres of water embedded in your average cotton Tee that is saved every time you choose to repair rather than replace. Water that can (and should) be used for drinking on an increasingly stressed planet.
It’s been estimated by WRAP UK that we can reduce the carbon footprint of our clothes by ~30% for every 9 additional months we keep wearing them. It's a no-brainer and one of the easiest things we can do to reduce our individual footprints.
