What will a finished repair look like?
We use a restoration process called reweaving or reknitting depending on if its a knit or woven fabric. It is done by hand and produces a nearly invisible repair. Fiber is discreetly taken from the original garment so the repair blends naturally into the fabric. This works especially well on moth holes, tears & cigarette or cigar burns.

How do you match the yarn so it looks invisible?

Yes, we can restyle collars and plackets as well as other areas of the garment. We use our expertise and years of experience to customize the sweater to your satisfaction.
How much will my repair cost?
We know that price is important to you when deciding if you want to invest in caring for your garment. Since most of what we do is done by hand and damage varies from piece to piece, it is difficult for us to give you an accurate price without seeing the garment. However, we determine pricing, here are a few factors that we take into consideration: the difficulty of harvesting the yarn or thread from the garment, gauge of the knit or woven fabric and size of the damage. If you have any further questions call us, we’d love to hear from you.
How long will my repair take?
On average we have a three week turn around time on most repairs. Certain repairs that require extreme detail may take four to six weeks. Rush service is available for an additional charge.
