iFixit is a wiki-based site that teaches people how to fix almost anything. Anyone can create a repair manual for a device, and anyone can also edit the existing set of manuals to improve them. Our site empowers individuals to share their technical knowledge with the rest of the world.

iFixit helps thousands of people repair their devices every day. Why do we do it? Because many companies don't provide repair parts and documentation to end users. We believe everyone should have the right to maintain and repair their products.

The only thing added is some sustainably sourced material to strengthen the yarn. This has to be done since the mechanical shredding shortens the fibres of your old garment.
