Kintsugi for Clothing

Mending garments with gold threads

Borrowing from the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold alloy, we’ve developed a kintsugi for clothing practice as a way to cherish and extend the life of our favourite garments by gold thread visible mending.


The tools and materials to use for this task are simple - gold embroidery threads, sewing needles and snippers, wooden darning mushroom or the curved side of a cup.

You can read more about this on the blog post and you can watch the Modified Eyelet Stitch  tutorial on the MrsWooYouTube channel. We've also prepared Kintsugi Mending Kits and especially sourced threads for this practice.

NOTE We are developing more mending stitch tutorials as we go so tap in once in a while to see where we're at with these!
