Postal - In Real Life - Drop-off


With over 30,000 tonnes of textile waste heading to landfill or incinerators each year it is my mission to reduce fashion waste.

Hi, I'm Gay, the creative mind behind Lived-In Repairs, I have over 18 years of experience in repairing garments.

I believe that every piece of clothing deserves a second chance and can be brought back to life with a little love and care.

Visible mending is my specialty - I believe in embracing imperfections and turning them into badges of honour. From crotch repairs to patching holes, binding cuff jackets & replacing zips, plus so much more.

(Please note that sometimes there may be items like leather or sequins which are a challenge, please get intouch beforehand if you require more specialist repairs.)

To make things super convenient for you I have 3 ways you can get your garments to me:

1) Postal Repairs Service

2) Roaming Repairs Session

3) Drop ‘n’ Mend

Curious about pricing? Here is a handy price list so you can get an idea of what to expect. And don't worry if you don't see your specific repair listed - drop me an email at  


By choosing Lived-In Repairs you’ll not only extend the lifespan of your favourite pieces but also contribute towards making responsible clothing choices. Together, let's make a difference and give clothes the love they deserve!
