Salvage your favorite denim with Denver’s Denim Doctor!

About this Event

Bring you favorite, worn out denim to the Horseshoe Market and learn the basics of Sahsiko hand-mending along with some other unique repair techniques from Ryan Finke, Denver’s Denim Doctor!

Sashiko/BORO is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching originating in Japan during the Edo period. Historically it’s been used to reinforce tears with patches, but this running stitch technique has recently gained popularity for its is decorative appeal.

Ryan Finke is an industrial designer living in Denver. He began selling vintage Levi’s and repairing classic denim about four years ago in his basement for fun, then he turned it into a bonafide business. He’ll not only save your beloved vintage 501 Levi’s when they’re way past their prime, he’ll hook you up a one of a kind Sherpa trucker jacket you’ll cherish for life. And let’s get real, the environment is a mess right now. Finke encourages us to all do our part and repair our favorite things instead of replacing them. Plus, your kid is gonna eventually want that killer Sherpa trucker jacket for themselves.
