Second Life – Repair Service
We all know the feeling; our favourite jeans or jacket is falling apart after years and years of heavy usage. All that time of breaking them in, and all the memories in them down the drain. But don´t lose hope, we can fix them! Bring them to us and we´ll give your favourite garment a second life.
We believe in sustainability and we are happy to take care of your worn out jeans. It's good for the environment as well as for your wallet. Not to mention the feeling of having rescued a doomed pair of jeans for another stretch of years.
In our store we have all the machines needed to make a pair of jeans, which means we can easily fix your favourite ones. Just stop by with your jeans and we will make them – if not new again – at least ready for another round.
If you don't have the opportunity to stop by the store you are more than welcome to send the garment to us. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you with instructions as soon as possible.
We focus on denim repair because that's our home turf, but if you need help mending something else please don't hesitate to ask us. If we for some reason cannot fix your request, we will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Please note: The jeans have to be freshly washed before mending.

We don’t change the width of the waist on jeans. We also do not repair stretchy jeans, for the reason that these usually crack right next to the repair.
Current waiting time for mending is approximately two-three weeks. We will always contact you when the repair is done, and try again one time if you don't pick up. Payments for mendings are always made when you come to pick up your garments. If the jeans have not been collected within six months after they are finished we take the right to clear them out, we might give them to a charity organization or find another use for them. We will always try to contact you one last time before getting rid of your jeans!
*Up to around five cm/leg
