sticky hack

by Grace Bonney

Thanks to the crafty people in my life (namely Kate and Matt), I’ve become sort of obsessed with materials lately. I used to be more of a finished-product type of person, but now the raw materials (wood, leather, brass rivets, etc.) seem more appealing than the things they can become. So I was fascinated by this video for sugru, a sticky material that has incredible holding power. I’m already dreaming up 9 million ways I’d like to use this around the house to keep things together that are starting to wear, but this video sort of says it all. It’s always fun to see a useful product in action. xo, grace
