Our services

French Reweave

This method is also know as the Invisible Weave, a technique applied on select fabrics with small holes, tears and burns. It involves a meticulous process wherein threads are taken from an inside seam of the garment and are hand-woven into the damaged area. The thread strands are replaced individually, creating a new fabric that is visually indistinguishable from the rest of the garment.

Inweaving

This method is the most common reweaving technique, applied on larger tears. A piece of fabric is taken form a hidden area of the garment and is interwoven into the frayed edges of the damaged area, matching the fabric’s pattern. Inweaving on a solid color material may show a discernable outline, while plaids tend to show invisible repairs.

Reknitting

Similar to the French Weave, this method involves taking hidden thread strands from sweaters, double knits, and wool knits. The thread strands are then knitted into the damaged area of the garment. Intricate care is practiced to match the knit pattern and style.
