Internal repair

Instead of darning the holes the aim of the internal patches is to make them stand out, they become a ´window´. The best thing to do is to use patches that contrast with the tone of your denim jeans to get that small piece of fabric to catch people´s attention. You can also stitch on with coloured needle and thread to add some decoration. Adding this type of patch is very simple and in general some practice will be enough to do it.

External patches

Another option with which you can get the complete opposite effect by completely covering the hole from the outside. There are very diverse materials of different shapes and sizes that you can look for that are the perfect size of the hole, or you can choose one much bigger which takes up a large part of the leg, for example. Or you can even put in place a patch with an intriguing shape. It´s certain that you will find a patch that will represent your personal style if you look hard enough.

Boro Style

Boro is a style that has remerged in recent years that consists of using patches of fabric to create a rugged look with various layers of fabric. It´s a similar technique to patchworking and it is of Japanese origin. This style combines perfectly with denim and offers infinite creative possibilities.

By being in constant renovation they keep their appeal and the orginiality of their first day.
