If you already mend, sashiko stitch, recycle, or create with thread and cloth, you'll love this book like you love the meeting of minds in a kindred spirit.
If you are new to this, I don't know of a book that offers more as a place to start this deeply satisfying journey. This book speaks to the heart of so many of our customers. It's title tells it all. Inside, clear text, clean beautiful photographs, and Katrina's voice in the essays tell you everything you need to know about how, and why making matters. And add to all that, this book is a beautiful book. Hardbound, with indented print on the cover, you'll spend time just running your fingers over the texture of the cover (I did) :-)
The full title is: Mending Matters. Stitch, patch, and repair your favorite denim and more. A slow Fashion guide to a well loved wardrobe.
