TAUKO Issue No. 1
Buy Issue No. 1 (Winter 2021) of TAUKO magazine. In this issue, you will find chapters that highlight makers as artists, revolutionaries and designers. We enter ‘The Age of the Makers’ with essays and columns by Orsola de Castro, Sonya Philip and Wambui Njuguna-Räisänen. Experts from different professions in the field of fashion and textiles share their experience and ponder the question ‘Could makers revolutionise the fashion industry?’ Within the pages we come to realise how important it is to find and appreciate the individual handprint of a maker, and the 12 actual size sewing patterns and detailed instructions inspire makers of all levels to start a new sewing project.
