It started with the trousers of Thom. Unrepairable. This resulted in a yarn. The yarn became a fabric. The fabric a jacket. Doomed to wear out, made to mend. Designed for the future, questioning the fashion machine that manufactures clothes as disposables. This jacket stays. It moves with you. It is forever yours.

Made to Mend is a new material, a fabric with a repair possibility based on traditional darning. Made to Mend is also a label that develops products of this new material.
