Upcycled, vintage and secondhand style for your sustainable wardrobe

We have a bond

Vintage-Patch New adhesive test patchesWe love stitching and embellishing our elbow, knee and repair patches, but know that some of you out there aren’t fans of sewing and would prefer a ‘no sew’ product.  Whilst the current fusible adhesive we use is brilliant, in common with others on the market, it doesn’t always provide a long lasting bond on washables without additional stitching to secure it permanently.

So, we’ve been doing some research in to new adhesives which will offer a permanent bond with no additional needlework.   And, after not a little searching, we think we may have found one.

How exciting!  Here are our test patches, ironed on this afternoon; one denim, one woven cotton, one cotton jersey t shirting.  Now they are all set for a dozen rounds with the washing machine.  Watch this space and we’ll let you know they get on.
