French Invisible Weaving This type of reweaving is done on very small holes, up to about the size of a dime. It is a meticulous process in which threads are taken from an inside seam of the garment and actually hand woven in and out of all other threads in order to close the hole and make it invisible. It is a time-consuming process and is thus the most expensive method.
Inweave This is the most common reweaving process. A piece of fabric from a hidden area of the garment is placed over the hole and interwoven into the edges of the hole. It is also, a difficult process and must be matched exactly with the pattern of the garment. An inweave on a solid color material may show a discernible square outline.
Reknitting This type of weave can be done on knitted fabrics only, such as sweaters, double knits or wool knits. Visibility depends on the type and color of the knit and the size of the damage.
How long does it take? We use an outside company for this service and it can take up to three weeks. It may take longer if we wait for approval on an estimate.
How much does it cost? Because it is a meticulous hand-done technique, reweaving is not inexpensive. It is a good alternative, however, to discarding a favorite suit or sweater in the event of damage. We offer free estimates and descriptions of the work at your request. Just indicate you would like this option on your invoice. If no estimate is requested; we select the best method possible to repair the damage.
