Founded in 1921, Fujix created silk threads for sewing silk garments. This hand sewing thread has been made with strength and composition originally to sew kimono, but have been a reliable and much-loved thread to use on domestic projects worldwide for decades now. See Sewing Needles here.
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.
