Types of repair or alterations possible
- Visible Mending
- Creative altering and upcycling
- Tears, rips and holes
- Patch working
This kind of careful work takes time, creativity and skill from our specialists so we have limited spots available. To guarantee a spot, reserve your time slot HERE. Most repairs and customisations will be able to be done on-the-spot. Alterations will be either by machine or hand-stitched depending on what is required.
We offer free museum entrance to everyone who brings a clothing item to the upcycle station on these days. You are also welcome to donate your unworn items at the Fashion for Good Museum where we collect textiles in the City Textile Cart from the Gemeente Amsterdam.
