Giving Your Gear Another Life

San Juan Sewing is a small outdoor gear repair operation located in Durango, Colorado. My goal is to change the trend of always needing something new. Sometimes your gear may need a little love to get it back in working order. I hope to create a new trend of re-use and repair. 

My name is Tae Hillyer and I am a one man operation. An Army veteran and trained biologist who has decided to do something a little different. My time working with other outdoor equipment manufacturers (Bedrock Bags, Alpacka Rafts) has given me the skills and knowledge to have your favorite outdoor gear back in working order. I hope to hear from you with questions or gear repair needs. Thank You!!
