ABOUT THE TAILOR NETWORK
FASHION WITH PURPOSE
"The idea for The Tailor Network came to me while working on a project in Asia and getting my first tailored suit. I was able to select the fabrics I wanted, determine core design elements, and the fit ….. I could not believe the difference! From that minute I was sold, and I knew I could never buy an off-the-rack suit again. Wearing a tailored suit feels totally different: more comfort, better quality, and a totally different body experience.
I was wondering why I had to travel to Asia to have this experience at a competitive price. In Europe we have such a strong tailoring culture and history. I remember growing up with every town having its own tailor.
I started looking into the options for additional tailored suits in Europe, I couldn't find anything price competitive that wasn’t made in Asia (I have seen working conditions in those factories).
I wanted to create something that would allow people to wear unique clothes at a fair price, that would bring work back to local communities, and have real impact. When we started working on the details for The Tailor Network, we soon realized that we could extend our benefit beyond just bringing work back to existing tailors, we could create opportunities for those who struggle to find meaningful income due to their low education – this is how we came to the idea of Tailor Empowerment.
