Giving Your Gear Another Life
My name is Tae Hillyer and I am the owner of San Juan Sewing, a small outdoor gear repair operation located in Durango, Colorado. I am an Army veteran and ex field/wildlife biologist who thought it was time to do something a little different in the name of sustainability. I hope to create a new trend of re-use and repair.
My time running San Juan Sewing and 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. Sometimes your gear may need a little love to get it back in working order. I hope to hear from you with questions or gear repair needs. Thank You!!
