All clothing has a history, and as it is your clothing, that history is a very personal one.

When you invest in an article of clothing, especially when it is made by a very old company and is very well made, you hate to give it up because of a small tear or moth hole. Which is where Reweaving of Richmond comes into play. Whether or not the repair is barely visible is beside the point. That small repair to a cherished garment is now part of your history together. Some things are worth saving.
