In this era of eco-awareness, we often find ourselves choosing between buying beautiful new things and making do with what we have. When it comes to clothes we feel like we might have an answer for fashion conscious types who find themselves in this situation: All the endearing quality and craftsmanship of a quality garment in a product that hovers on the periphery of one's wardrobe, a sort of meta-fashion toolbox: a sewing kit.
The Merchant & Mills Oilskin Sewing Kit is on our list of ideas for Off-The-Grid designers, but its portability is only part of its appeal—it comes with all of the basics for extending the life of your garb, but its form is the force that will inspire and elicit the best of your darning abilities: a heritage aesthetic that nods at tradition and an untying, unfolding presentation that will ritualize you right into the mood for zen-ing out on your stitching.
