Brooklyn General's own mending kit, to keep your favorite blue jeans in rotation!

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery style that can be traced back to the 1600s. Sashiko has historically been used as both a decorative and functional stitching technique to extend the life of clothing. While the supplies included in this kit are used for traditional sashiko, you can also use them for any style of hand mending.

For more information on various hand mending styles, we recommend Katrina Rodabaugh's excellent mending guides, Mending Matters and Make Thrift Mend, as well as Arounna Khounnoraj's book Visible Mending.

Kit includes:

1 skein of Off-White Olympus Sashiko thread

1 Sashiko Thimble

2 Olympus Sashiko Needles

3 fancy denim patches - may differ from those shown in photo.  Size of patches is approximately 5x8 inches.

*Instructions are not included - the idea here is the same as a "sewing kit" with all the needed supplies for mending denim, rather than a "how-to" kit.
