What is Re-weaving or Invisible mending?
The term “Invisible Mending” or “Re-Weaving” dates back more than 200 years and describes the highly skilled and time-consuming method of repairing damage to cloth by taking individual threads from a hem, side seam or other concealed part of the garment of the same type and reweaving them over the damaged area to make as near perfect repairs as is humanly possible.
BEFORE DURING AFTER
There are many other methods of repairing which are often wrongly described as “Invisible”. Proper Invisible Mending skills take many years to perfect. There are no end of local tailors and seamstresses who are “handy with a needle” but that is in no way the same as genuine “Invisible Mending”. When a quality job is called for, only proper Invisible Mending will do.
