    Fantastic results, D!

    I highly highly recommend Alex's Reweaving in Los Angeles, CA. They take shipiments and places such as: LP, Cuch, and Zegna sends their stuff there. How do I know this? I've seen their boxes within the store

    I believe they do invisible and they also do the very tough french reweaving. It's quite pricey tho at around $55-65 per hole/issue. I've taken at least 4 items there and I still cannot find where the hole/issue/blemish was before.

    ^ Fabric Reweavers USA.

    I'm glad this work is still being done as I hate waste.

    A good resource for NYers:

    http://www.bestweavingandmending.com

    I brought in a brand-new camelhair sweater (that moths got to before I even wore it) and a cashmere turtleneck and was thoroughly impressed with the work. The price of repair was much lower than replacing the garments. They're also training a young lady to take part in the next generation of reweavers.

    Totally Agree!

    My expectations were exceeded

    I'd choose Fabric Reweavers USA again in a heartbeat.

    Quick highlights:
    - 2 garments: (1) wool herringbone trousers with dime size hole at the bottom.

    (2) Harris Tweed sport coat with moth holes (pencil eraser size)
    [​IMG]
    - Fabric Reweavers USA is a Family run business (for decades) and is located in Miami, FL.
    - I’m on the opposite end of the Country in Idaho (found them online).
    - Chose them over others because I was promptly contacted after my initial inquiry by a person - not a “canned reply” email
    - They directly communicated with me throughout the entire process via phone and email.
    - They found other moth holes I did not see, and marked the repair areas with a fine red thread gently woven into the area (pulled right out effortlessly)
    - I received personal, friendly service and superb quality of work.
    - Even got a followup phone call at the end to ensure I was satisfied.

    After Photos:
    Harris Tweed sport coat (no more moth holes)
    [​IMG]
    fine red thread at bottom (marking one of the repaired areas)

    wool herringbone trousers after ...

    NOTE about moth holes: Dry cleaning first will make "hidden" moth holes visible so they can repair.
