PORTFOLIO

If, for whatever reason, you are not in a position to do your own repair, then you can commission me for a tomofholland Visible Mend.

Contact me on tomofholland@gmail.com to discuss what’s possible.

  1. I am so pleased to have come across your visible mending. I love the idea of a garment giving away some of its life story the way old houses do. The idea’s not made it to my part of the world (Warwickshire) that I know about, but I hope to be assertive enough to try it out in public

  2. I would like to know if you have a visible mending service.
    It is about a very old black cardigan in wool which I like very much.
    I don’t know how to knit so I ‘m a little bit afraid to repair it by myself.
    Thank you for your answer.

  3. Very beautiful work; thank you for continuing a tradition that my mother Continued so well, but I fear I have not done. Judith

  4. Absolutely beautiful and inspiring work. Seeing various visible mending examples has inspired me to practice some techniques so I can try and mend 3 of my gorgeous cashmere jumpers in a way that doesn’t hide the damage, but rather highlights how much love I have for my existing clothes! Jen

  5. Beautiful work. As I’m sure you’re how you are part of a artisan movement for this visible repair work. I find it touching as I also think of the practice of Kintsugi. Repairing ceramic with gold. From wikipedia: As its philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. For me also, I’m so used to interacting with another women when its about knitting or repairing. Always great to see a different prospective. I wasn’t planning to write so much 🙂 Great work. Looking forward in cruising through your blog. 🙂
