Sashiko: Visible Mending

In a world where we're surrounded by fast fashion, we challenge you to slow down, grab a piece of clothing you love that's just too 'loved' to wear, and stitch up its sad and sorry parts until it becomes a beautiful piece of art that's so unique there will never be another one like it.
