Uniqlo has opened a new space for the repair and remaking of used fashion items at its London flagship store on Regent Street.
The fashion retailer had already been offering its repair service in the store since it opened back in April, but this has now been relocated to the dedicated Re.Uniqlo Studio space.
There, trained staff take care of everything from hemming trousers and sewing buttons to mending holes and other damage on Uniqlo items with prices starting from £3.

Alongside alterations and tailoring, Uniqlo will also offer an elevated service turning Uniqlo clothes into fresh new items with a host of repair and customisation offerings including the Japanese Sashiko stitching technique”.
The old tradition encourages customers to mend, embellish and upcycle clothes to give them a new lease of life and keep them for an even longer time.
Accessories will also be available for customers to try to repeat these techniques at home, including Shozaburo scissors and Misuya Bari needles for Kyoto and Sashiko threads. In addition, Uniqlo is now selling an exclusive range of one of a kind Uniqlo garments already reimagined using these techniques.
