Climate change is making us rethink how we use resources and not subscribing to fast-fashion and re-using and mending our clothes has become a mark of pride. This is visible mending, more akin to embroidery and embellishment that will make your favourite clothing even more personal and save it from landfill. Traditional English darning is covered as well as several variations, including reversible darns for cuffs and collars, sashiko mending for jeans and tambourine darns for just about anywhere. This is the first UK edition of the cult darning book by Hikaru Noguchi who has become a guru of visible darning in Japan. This detailed step-by-step guide makes the methods easy to follow even for non-sewers. The stylish photography shows off the artistic and minimalist style of the designer’s work. The author outlines her own inspirations from the work of Rachael Matthews and Celia Pym.
Hikaru Noguchi moved to England from Japan in 1989 to study constructed textiles. After completing her studies at Middlesex University she developed new and innovative textiles for furnishings, scarves, bags and garments with a number of designers including Tom Dixon, Top Shop and projects for Barneys, Browns, Paul Smith women, Takashimaya New York and many other stores. Hikaru has participated in many shows and exhibitions all over the world, and her work is sold in boutiques and department stores in London, Paris, New York, Tokyo, and elsewhere. Other publications include Made in France, Marabout and Knitting,
