Mending as a form of care to the clothing that have held our bodies through thick and thin over the past years. Mending as care to ourselves. Mending as sustainability to our planet. Mending as radical act against capitalism.

Say thank you to your socks, your sweaters, and your jeans by learning mends to make them last even longer.
