Description

This cult book is a step by step guide by Hikaru Noguchi, a guru of visible darning in Japan. This is visible mending, more akin to embroidery and embellishment that will make your favorite clothing even more personal and save it from landfill. Climate change is making us rethink how we use resources and not subscribing to fast-fashion and re-using and mending our clothes has become a mark of pride. This detailed step-by-step guide makes the methods easy to follow even for non-sewers. The stylish photography shows off the artistic and minimalist style of the designer's work.
