“Everything changes, even stone”
– Claude Monet
The Jogakbo Service is meant for medium to large and visible repairs (maximum of 900 square meters) in your textile product. In case you have a smaller tear or hole (less than 9 square centimeters) in your item we advise you to choose either our Mending Service or our Boro Service; these repairing techniques are much more suitable for very small surfaces.
For this service we can work with your garment made from any kind of fabric, such as jerseys, wovens (from denim to light weight) and regular knit fabrics. All kinds of fabric qualities and colors are workable to us. We only do not accept heavy knit sweaters. Not sure if your sweater is a heavy or regular knit? Send us a picture of your garment first.
Send your item
After ordering your Jogakbo Service(s), please send your item(s) to:
Hul le Kes
Van Oldenbarneveldtstraat 79a
6828 ZN Arnhem, The Netherlands
Make sure to provide a small note with your name and order number, so we will know the item is yours. Also make sure we can actually find the place we need to replace.
Each garment will be repaired at the Hul le Kes Recovery Studio, all by hand and visible. We are a proponent of showing the aging of garments. It is all about the beauty of imperfections, the beauty of needlework and your love for the garment. As part of consumerism people tend to forget about the fact you can repair a garment and extend its life cycle. The Hul le Kes Services will help you towards a more sustainable wardrobe in many ways.
Back to you
You will receive back your item 3 to 4 weeks after we have received your garment. This will depend on the type of item, how busy our studio is at that moment and on where you live. Please make sure to supply us with all your contact information. When ordering any of our Services you will already pay for the transport back to you.
