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.

Highlights of this book include:
Fully illustrated with color photography throughout
Detailed step-by-step images
Easy to follow techniques (even for beginners)
Plenty of inspiration for adventurous menders

Twelve darning Techniques are covered in detail with step-by-step instructions include: Seed stitch, square darning, Reversible darns, Seed and square darn, Triangular darns, English darning, Accordion darning, Appliqué, Reverse appliqué, Chain darning, Honeycomb Darning and the decorative Tambourine darning. Ten chapters cover mending sweaters, shirts, denim, items in the home as well as accessories, such as scarves and bags.

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.
