Sustainable clothing after-care consultancy

Drawing on over a decade at the forefront of the sustainability conversation, we work with small retailers and clothing brands on delivering and communicating sustainable clothing after-care solutions. We are great believers that clothes should be worn and repaired, and not end up in landfill.

We work with a number of prestigious boutiques offering alterations and repairs and can help with strengthening sustainability credentials on a consultancy basis too. For more details on our full range services see the ‘Consultancy’ section. 

Why Use Splendid Stitches?

We want each item of clothing to be worn and treasured, and understand the power of alterations and repairs is the difference between usage and becoming waste.

Our extensive experience of vintage means we understand how a repair or alteration is best done, to last and to prevent future damage.

If something is not salvageable or difficult to alter well, we will tell you and offer an alternative solution to keep your item in circulation.  

Clothes construction, finishes and fabrics have changed immensely over the years, and is very different to modern, mass-produced clothing. We aim to bring the oft forgotten skills of alterations and repairs back to add value and connection with a modern day wardrobe.
