Extra Life

Your favorite, perfectly worn-in jeans have gone from "distressed look" to "distress call." Repairing is caring, but with "slow textile" maker Megan Mussari's kit, you don't just patch tears and worn spots—you also adorn your old denim friends with one-of-a-kind artistry. Both decorative and practical, sashiko is a centuries-old Japanese folk technique of embroidery mending based on the simple running stitch. Antique sashiko pieces are now highly prized by collectors; now you can easily sew your own using the kit's special sashiko thread and needles. Make beautiful repairs to your highly prized denim and give it its longest possible life. The kit also includes pins and cushion, needle threader, recycled denim patches in varying colors, and instructions. Components made in China and Thailand. Assembled in New York City.

Due to the recycled nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Through her intuitive curiosity in natural dyes and desire to make quality products by hand, and a background in the fashion and textiles industry, Megan saw and felt firsthand the harsh effects of synthetic dyes in mass production. In an effort to find friendlier alternatives, her studies and explorations in natural dyeing began. Following these endeavors, Megan was able to focus on the Japanese tradition of Shibori indigo dyeing. These methods provide structure while also allowing for experimentation in an effort to broaden knowledge, skills and inspirations. From Megan's artist studio in Brooklyn, New York, she is on a constant search and exploration inspired by natural movements. By embracing the beauty of human error within the dyeing process,each design is truly one of a kind.
