Learn a hand-sewing technique called darning to mend and repair your clothes in a purposefully, embellished way. This darning book is a step-by-step guide by Hikaru Noguchi, a guru of visible darning in Japan. This is visible mending, more akin to embroidery and embellishment that will make your favorite clothing even more personal and save it from the landfill.

Climate change is making us rethink how we use resources and why not subscribing to fast-fashion is important. In fact, re-using and mending our clothes has become a mark of pride. 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.
