We believe in the power of a fully sustainable fashion system. And we believe, that if we help you take care of your garments, you can keep, wear and love them for as long as possible – and beyond.

REPAIR A BROKEN ZIPPER

Got a broken zipper? We know how frustrating this can be. No worries, we got you covered with some easy and simple repair instructions.

All you need: yarn, needle and scissors.

REPAIR A CROTCH HOLE

We can all agree that crotch holes are some of the most inconvenient damages a denim can possibly have. Here are some simple repair instructions for you. Here we used a sewing machine, but you can easily sew it by hand. Trust us! If you want to bring your sewing skills to the next level, utilize some fabric lining for extra resistance.

All you need: yarn, needle, scissors, denim patch and measuring tape.

Optional (for our professionals): fabric lining, tailoring chalk, sewing machine, iron, and ironing board.

REPAIR HOLES

Your favorite denim has a hole? We know the struggle. Don’t panic, there’s no hole that can’t be fixed. Just follow our repair instructions and let your hands do the magic. For smoother edges along the hole you can use a kitchen grater. A multifunctional device, not only in the kitchen.

All you need: yarn, needle, scissors, fabric of choice and measuring tape.

Optional (for our professionals): kitchen grater. 

REPAIR A LOOSE BUTTON

Fixing a button from your beloved pair of denim isn’t as hard as it may seem. At least not with ARMEDANGELS repair. We show you a simple way of how to replace a denim button with a regular one. Without special tools. Just try it yourself.

All you need: yarn, needle, scissors and two buttons.

Optional (for our professionals): fabric lining, iron, and ironing board. 

REPAIR A RIPPED BELT LOOP

Ever pulled up your pants so strongly that the belt loop ripped? We hear you. And we will show you how to fix it easily. Give it a go.

All you need: yarn, needle, scissors, fabric of choice and measuring tape.

Optional (for our professionals): fabric lining, iron, and ironing board.
