In Visible Mending, Arounna Khounnraj explores why we should mend, and how to mend a variety of different fabrics. Work through the book to discover how to repair forgotten pieces and give worn-out clothes a new life. Today, mending has become an extension to making. Mending is about returning value to something, an opportunity to decorate, emphasize details and express identity by repurposing and reusing.
