Repairing Pairs Of Jeans

For a few years, Edwin van Zoeren is repairing pairs of jeans with his own company Dutch Denim Repair. Most of the repairs are crotch blow-outs, small rips, and holes. Next to that, he’s also doing original hemming services which are done with an authentic Union Special darning machine.

He’s also the official hemming partner with Dutch denim brand Benzak Denim Developers since last year. Read more about this partnership here.

Momotaro Emergency Room Project

Sometimes Edwin is receiving pairs of jeans with a very special story. This Momotaro Emergency Room project is one of them. It started when his customer Frédéric was in the emergency room in Paris. He DM’d Edwin with a request if it would be possible to repair his beloved Momotaro jeans.

It has been cut open from the bottom to the top because his left leg had a complicated fracture after an accident on the streets of Paris.

Darned From Top To Bottom

Soon, Edwin replied that he would take care of it, so no worries. After a few weeks, Frédéric came back as he wanted to send the ripped jeans to Edwin. The jeans arrived soon at Edwin’s place, so he could work on a totally ripped pair.

He took care of it and darned the jeans from top to bottom, which wasn’t easy, but the outcome is just stunning! It looks a bit like a darning lightning flash.

Saved, And Ready For Many Wear Days

Frédéric couldn’t be happier that his favorite Momotaro jeans were saved with the crafted skills of Edwin. They’re ready for many wear days to come. Next to his jeans, he’s doing fine too after his recovery. So, all in all, a great unique repair story with a happy (denim) ending.
