Re-weaving is the process of restoring damage in woven garments. All work must be done by hand with special needles, one thread at a time. A state-of-the-art microscope allows our re-weavers two view the threads close-up and repair finely woven fabrics.

Our re-weavers use several methods using the threads from the original garment to match the damaged area. The "French Weave" method is the most unique as each thread is replaced individually. This method can be used if the damage is small--up to 3/8 inch in diameter. Larger damages can be repaired in coarsely woven garments such as tweeds.

Using a "Piece Weave" or "Over Weave", a square of fabric slightly larger than the damage is taken from another area of the garment and woven into the damaged area using the same pattern as damaged area, Provided there is enough fabric available, a damage from one to two inches square can be repaired using this method. Anything larger depends and the material available.
