Uniqlo introduces a repair and remake space at Regent Street store
Uniqlo has introduced a new space for the repair and remaking of used fashion items at its Regent Street store in London.
Called the Re.Uniqlo Studio, the space will provide customers with a place to bring Uniqlo items that require mending or alteration. Trained staff will take care of everything from hemming trousers and sewing buttons to mending holes and other damage with prices starting from £3.
Alongside alterations and tailoring, Uniqlo will offer an elevated service that turns clothes into fresh new items with a host of repair and customisation offerings, including the Japanese Sashiko stitching technique. The very old tradition encourages customers to mend, embellish and upcycle clothes to give them a new lease of life and keep them for an even longer time.
Accessories will also be available for customers to try to repeat these techniques at home, including Shozaburo scissors and Misuya Bari needles for Kyoto and Sashiko threads. In addition, Uniqlo is now selling an exclusive range of one of a kind Uniqlo garments already reimagined using these techniques.
