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 visible mending with gold thread - and a basic but comprehensive kit to inspire and provide the tools for you to kintsugi with.

This full kintsugi mending kit includes -

  • Printed guide to Kintsugi for Clothing - mending techniques
  • Pouch - made from fabric cuttings from Mrs Woo's clothing production line
  • Darning mushroom with hollow handle for needle storage - made from recycled timber by UseThings
  • 1 selection of gold-coloured fabric patches - various natural fibre fabrics of linen and cotton
  • 1 card of silk embroidery gold thread - 40m of thread
  • 2 cards of cotton embroidery gold thread - 40m of thread per card
  • 1 set of pins
  • 1 set of sewing needles
  • 1 pair of snippers

NOTE: Due to various timber sources, there are colour variations and unique markings on each darning mushroom.
