Maker's Quote

It is now possible to buy very cheap clothes, which get thrown out when there’s a small hole or button missing. This is something I highlight with the Visible Mending Programme. I’d like to go back to an older mindset, where clothes were expensive, and you looked after and repaired them until they were completely threadbare.
