Golden Joinery

Started in 2013, Golden Joinery is a non-commercial, collaboratively developing clothing brand, initiated by Painted Series.
In playful workshops  you are invited to repair a dear but broken garment with gold.

Touched by the Japanese technique Kintsugi, where broken porcelain is visibly healed with gold, Painted Series started to translate this gesture to fashion.
Kintsugi means golden joinery.

Celebrating the story of your garments with golden scars, a second layer is added, putting into question the monopoly of fashion labels.
