The Art of Repair, published by Short Books is a collection of stories, tips and fragments of history exploring the humble act of textile repair.

‘With illustrations and inspiring photographs throughout, this beautiful hardback explores the origins of repair and what it means in the world today. It includes ancient and traditional techniques - from Indian Kantha stitching to Japanese boro repair - plus personal repair stories and helpful tips on how to do simple stitches yourself.’ - Short Books

To repair something (anything) in the modern world is a defiant act, which flies in the face of consumerism and what it stands for. The Art of Repair offers an antidote to our increasingly disposable lifestyle by encouraging us to contemplate the positive and powerful effects we can gain from preserving the broken, and ultimately to reconnect with ourselves and the world we live in.
