The colour white is a symbol of purity. It is clean and simple, evoking freshness and light. A neutral colour, white goes with every other shade in the spectrum, and for the most part, enhances them. So, whilst it might not be the first colour you think of for a project, using some white in your patching activities can work really well. I’ve found it effective for adding small accents such as hearts on the front of a plain camisole, or a set of elbow patches on a light colour shirt or pastel jumper. For something more elaborate, how about a topping a white patch with some heavy gold thread embroidery – perfect for covering the mark on those white jeans you love but can’t get the stain out of. Cut a white patch into smaller pieces for invisible repairs to the inside of t shirts, school polo shirts , shorts, sportswear and more….you can even make them into nametapes with the help of a fabric sharpie pen. Torn sheet? Try a repair with one of our white patches. We use a medium weight pure cotton fabric. Our current supply is new on the roll, but we but do substitute reclaimed textile when available.”
