Colin Firth`s wife prefers mending old clothes

London: Actor Colin Firth`s wife Livia Giuggioli says she does not throw away clothes that need a little stitching. She prefers to mend them for further use.

Giuggioli accepts she does not throw away things, reports

"With my kids` clothes, we do a lot of hand-me-downs with friends," said Livia, who is a well-known Italian film producer.

"I mend. I know often 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 added.

The couple has two sons - Luca, 11, and Matteo, 9.
