ABOUT THE DENIM REPAIR LAB
We love our jeans! In fact, Americans buy 450 million pairs of jeans every year. That’s a lot of love.
With denim being one of the harshest fibers on our environment to produce, its not always the most sustainable purchase. You search for your perfect pair of jeans, you break them in just right, the last thing you want to do is replace them when they start to fall apart. What can we do to hang onto our jean love AND our radical environmentalism? We’re so glad you asked!
The DRL wants to repair your favorite denim. Jeans, jackets, shirts, we’ll fix it all. Our unique style of visible, sashiko mending, will turn your bottom drawer, forgotten jeans into your new favorite wardrobe piece! By giving the denim you already own a second life, you’re continuing its story while doing your part to protect our environment.
