Reweaving is a specialized skill for repairing holes and tears in damaged garments.
It involves hand weaving thread strands into the garment’s damaged area, creating virtually invisible repairs.
Each worker wears magnifying glass plates while working with small needles and thread to reweave the damaged area. Stitch by stitch the reweaver replicates the garments original structure rendering the damaged area undetectable.
French weaving, also known as invisible weaving, is used to restore small holes, tears and burns in fabric.
Inweaving is used for larger tears, rips and wear, in cases where French weaving is impractical.
Reknitting is used to repair holes, tears, burns and wear in knit garments.
