TOAST recently launched TOAST Renewed, a collection of garments featuring visible repairs. The UK fashion brand retrieves damaged items from its stores and warehouse, including ones returned by customers. They're handed over to an in-house team of repair specialists who carefully mend each garment, taking fabric, color and texture into consideration.
The resulting pieces are one-of-a-kind, with visible repairs that use contrasting colors and techniques like Swiss darning and Japanese sashiko stitching. If patches or appliques are added, the menders use fabric from other TOAST pieces. Prices reflect a garment's original value plus the time a repair specialist took to assess and creatively fix it.
The Renewed collection builds on TOAST Repair, a service offering free mending of any of the brand's garments that customers bring in, no matter how old. First piloted in 2019, that service has evolved into a team of six repair specialists working from six locations and completing over 3,000 repairs.
