UNIQLO Launches New Studio That Mends Clothes, Sews Missing Buttons & More For Under RM12
UNIQLO has just unveiled its first RE.UNIQLO Studio in Malaysia at DA Square, Bandar Sri Damansara, where it provides clothing repair services
In an effort to encourage sustainability, the global apparel retailer set up the studio to help customers extend the life of their UNIQLO clothes by offering on-site repair services, such as mending broken seams, replacing and sewing on loose buttons, fixing patches, and more.
All repair services come with a small fee between RM5 and RM12
"UNIQLO's LifeWear philosophy has always emphasised quality and durability in our clothing. Moreover, we believe our responsibility is not only to produce and sell apparel that our customers can wear frequently and for a long time, but to also ensure clothing and materials last much longer," said Evelyn Tan, sustainability director of UNIQLO in Malaysia.
"Our RE.UNIQLO Studio at DA Square creates a great opportunity for us to partner with customers directly to sustain their personal LifeWear items, and foster more sustainable ideas about clothing in the community."
A workshop was held on the day of the launch to promote the three R's (repair, reuse, and recycle) for customers to learn embroidery skills and upcycle unwanted fabric into coasters.
If you're not in the Bandar Sri Damansara area, don't worry 'cause RE.UNIQLO Studio will be available at other outlets in Malaysia within the coming months
