Selected LookSmart stores provide Invisible Mending in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Perth, Wellington, Hamilton, Christchurch and Auckland. Fix tears, holes and burns on your favorite garments with our Invisible Mending service. Individual threads are taken from the unseen interior fabric of the garment and one by one are rewoven to fix the damaged areas. The pattern, colour and weave will be meticulously matched to appear the same as the original and the repair will last for the lifetime of the garment. The invisibility of the garment repair will depend on the type of material the garment is made of. Great results come from dark colours and soft wool. Light colours, stiff, synthetic and fine fabrics are not ideal.
The minimum turnaround time is 3 weeks - Mending for 5mm diameter starts from $100, also depending on the difficulty of the repair.
Invisibility will be between 70% - 95%, confirmation of percentage will be given along with quote.
