I love Bish Tear Mender. Fixes so many things –
- Frayed edges on the bottom of my pant legs – trimmed off the loose threads and worked a little Bish into the edges pinching them together. Works great on jeans – can’t even notice the repair!
- Fixed broken leather laces on my moccasins! Cannon see the repair.
- Fixed insulated vinyl cooler (zipper pulled away at the seam). Now it’s stronger than new. Cannot see the repair.
- Fixed Mother-in-law’s leather strap on her purse (brownie points!). Cannot see the repair.
So your product is U.S. made of course and employs workers with disabilities?? All while helping to extend the life of clothes and lowers the negative effects on our environment!! We love tear mender that much more!! We have a small following in the shop that we got hooked on Tear Mender FYI!!

Upcycling and mending are major parts of limiting textile waste and fast fashion, but what do you do if you can’t sew? . . . So why did I choose this fabric glue to support? I found Tear Mender exciting because of its ethics. Tear Mender is filled, packed, and shipped by visually impaired employees. Lighthouse for the Blind is a non-profit that acquired Tear Mender and supports individuals who are blind by providing them with jobs. This glue is acid-free and made with natural latex, so it sports a natural, non-toxic, and acid-free formula. I’ve been overall very impressed. I’m excited to try it on a wider range of materials (I’m most excited to fix some old shoes as it claims to bond to leather as well)! This 2oz bottle can support 50 clothing repairs, so it’ll last me a while and then I’ll clean out and reuse the bottle for something else!

My going on 20-year-old insulated pants. I’ve been using [Tear Mender] for almost as long. Love your product. And I recommend it to everybody who asks about patching their work clothes. Regular pants I patch from the inside and you can hardly tell, and no stitches. One of the best things about Tear Mender is that if you need a quick fix, [you are] ready to go in about 15 minutes. You make a great product which makes me more than happy to share.
