Mending Life: A Handbook for Repairing Clothes and Hearts by Nina and Sonya Montenegro
Mending Life is the perfect companion for anyone wishing to say goodbye to fast fashion & the endless "need" for more & more stuff. The practices behind this book are perfectly in line with the Zero Waste, Minimalism &/or Sustainable Eco Friendly movements. All of which I am a proud member. There really is something exhausting about being surrounded by so much.
This book is more than just directions on how to mend clothing to give it a longer life & then to further it's life through upcycling. Inside there are inspirational & uplifting stories, cute artwork & an overall feeling of doing something good for our Mother Earth, of being a part of something bigger than ones self. The physical book itself even lends an eco feel. The pages are not glossy, they have more of a Kraft paper style. The hard cover is textured & also non glossy with a pleasing feel. But wait, there's more! It also doesn't off gas any weird toxic odors. In fact, it hardly has a smell at all.
Overall, I am very glad I decided to order this book. As a full time eco farmer, I do all I can to live lightly & am fortunate to have a job where I can get away with wearing my clothing to the point where it is so thin & full of holes, it would be indecent to go out in public. LOL - but true.
If your goal is simply to live a more frugal life &/or you are sick of the waste & slave labor of fast fashion, you are sure to enjoy this lovely book as much as I do.
