  • Product Details

    Exploring the disruption of the towel’s stripe pattern using traditional mending and repair techniques, this vintage linen tea towel has been patched with a hemmed patch – a domestic method used to repair household linens. Channeling Tom's style of visible mending, the intention of his work is to keep the history of the piece. Each repair is made depending on the unique signs of wear making it entirely unique.

    About Tom of Holland

    Tom van Deijnen from Holland is a self-taught textiles practitioner based in Brighton. Tom has a deep understanding of fabrics and their characteristics and traditional techniques used in mending them. Working primarily with wool, he favours the old and imperfect over the brand new, as it brings to light the relationship between garment and wearer that has developed over time, creating a piece of clothing that is as unique as the history that created it.
