Moth Holes, Rips, Snags, & Burns

These conditions demand reweaving, not a simple repair. That means you need the expertise of the professionals at Winzer.

Reweaving is a skill that requires knowledge, practice, and patience. It’s an art; like most artistic pursuits, it’s been mastered by only a select few. At Winzer, we have 100 years of experience and expertise passed down from generation to generation to best serve our Westchester, Connecticut, New York City, and Long Island communities. While others may say reweaving is a lost art, we know it to be alive, well, and practiced daily at Winzer.

The two most popular reweaving services we offer are:

French Weave

Suitable for small areas of damage (1/4 - 3/8 of an inch diameter)garments are restored by replacing damaged threads individually.


This process is executes by transplanting a square of fabric from a hidden area of the garment (the hem, a pocket), and positioning it over the damaged area. The repair is completed by weaving the patch into the fabric thread by thread.

As you can imagine, either is a painstaking and time consuming process, but it’s a worthwhile investment if the garment is truly important to you. To learn more or for a free consultation contact us at (877) 946-9371 today.
