Mending is a slow fashion practice that focuses on care and rewear, instead of consumption. Mending is about embracing imperfection, making small repairs to clothing you already own, so that you can wear it for longer, rejecting the idea that newer is better, and adding a bit of character while you’re at it. If your goal is to work towards a more sustainable wardrobe, mending is one of the best ways to do this, because you are working with what you already have. By mending and repairing your clothing, you are making sure that you can wear it for longer, which means you are slowing down how much you consume and making sure that less goes to waste.
