Colin Firth''s wife makes sons wear patched up clothes



London, Jan 2 (PTI) "The Kings Speech" star Colin Firth and his wife Livia Giuggioli make their sons Luca and Matteo wear patched-up clothes rather than buying new items.

Italian film producer Giuggioli prefers to mend old garments for their sons Luca, 11, and nine-year-old Matteo rather than buying new ones and are happy to accept clothes from friends, reported Sun online.

Giuggioli, who has her own ethical fashion collection Livia Firth Design, said, "With my kids'' clothes, we do a lot of hand-me-downs with friends. I mend. I know it is easier to throw away a sock with a hole and buy a new one than mend it, but I don''t do that," she said.

The 43-year-old also said that she and Firth, 52, alongwith the boys enjoy relaxing pyjama weekends together where they watch their mother sew together clothes and have some much needed downtime.

Giuggioli, who regularly recycles clothes and other fabric items to create new usable garments and cushions, said, "The children aren''t allowed to do any clubs. We don''t do anything. We don''t go away. The kids need to rest!" PTI JCH
