Invisible mending is something special.
Most alteration services provide tailoring which adjusts the fit for aesthetic purposes or for size. Invisible mending differs in that damaged clothing is repaired to be restored to a very close state to its original form. Invisible mending serves to be a permanent fix and a nearly seamless aesthetic repair as well.
Clients trust their best garments to Alter Knit.
Clients send over garments for repair from the biggest brands and most celebrated designers including labels such as J.Crew, Theory, Helmut Lang and Brunello Cucinelli.
Even the pros use Alter Knit’s services.
Located in the ultra-chic fashion capital of New York, Alter Knit is no stranger to the industry. Designers that must remain nameless utilize their services for sample snafus and other mishaps requiring exacting repair. Alter Knit just continues to grow via word of mouth because the results of their work really say a lot about the quality of service.
Reweaving is a now seldom used skill from years ago.
While Alter Knit certainly is an innovative firm, the concept of reweaving is actually something that was very common years ago. Oftentimes younger clients are discovering this sort of repair work is possible for the very time while older clients are happy to see that someone is continuing this tradition of meticulous care.
Solutions are the name of the game.
Alter Knit Owner Miriam Mades: “We are able to work on knits of any fiber. We also can repair suits and overcoats of any fiber. It is important for people to understand that every fiber will take the repair differently. We educate our customers so that they can know what to expect. We are not able to repair T-shirt weight garments. Even though they are knit exactly the same way as a cashmere sweater is, the gauge of the material is too tiny to be repaired by hand. However, we always still encourage customers to send their garments to us for evaluation as a big part of being in business is finding solution for your customers. We love finding solutions for our customers with difficult repairs. Our customers say that we are magicians but even magicians have their limits.”
