Mending Service

starting from € 30

Wear, a tear, a hole or a small stain in your garment is no longer a reason to reject your item. Hul le Kes wants to help you to extend the life cycle of your favorite garment. Our Mending Service is developed to celebrate its smaller holes instead of hiding them. This visible mending will add even more emotional value to your garment, it will accentuate its characteristics and make it a great conversation piece.

Our mending is all done by hand at the Hul le Kes Recovery Studio. Please select if you would like us to use a tone on tone yarn, or a contrasting yarn to mend your garment.

“It is better to have a good painting with ten holes than ten bad paintings without any holes.”


Edvard Munch

The Mending Service is meant for smaller and visible repairs (maximum about 25 square centimeters) in your textile product. In case you have a bigger tear or hole in your item we advise you to choose either our Boro Service or our Jogakbo Service; these repairing techniques are much more suitable for bigger surfaces.

For this service we can work with 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.

How it works

  1. you have an item you love, but can not use anymore because of stains, wear, tears, holes or whatsoever
  2. you order a Mending Service via this page
  3. you will send us your item (see tab: send your item)
  4. when arrived we will give your item a unique mending code
  5. we will mend your garment
  6. we will send it back to you
  7. you have a renewed garment and extended its lifecycle

Send your item

After ordering your Mending 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 mend.

Mending Process

Each garment will be mended 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 a Mending Service you will already pay for the transport back to you.
