First number of Tauko Magazine is here! The philosophy of Tauko:
TAUKO Magazine is a pioneering independent print publication for home sewists and fashion and culture lovers, who have a big heart for the planet. It has its headquarters in Helsinki and Berlin and is founded and published by art researchers, fashion designers, makers, and passionate fighters for planetary wellbeing, Kaisa Rissanen and Mila Moisio. Its international network of contributors, designers, writers, photographers, and illustrators share the need to bring mindful and beautiful work to the world.
Each issue features more than 10 sewing pattern designs created by celebrities and newcomers from the sewing community. A carefully curated selection makes design clothing accessible to anyone willing to try out sewing and learn new skills. With actual-size paper patterns, easy guidelines, agile images, and illustrations, we wish to make the sewing experience empowering, exciting and fun. The vast horizon of crafts, culture, and climate is featured in interviews, columns, articles, tips, and recommendations by our international contributors.
TAUKO Magazine continues our story of finding new, regenerative, and empowering ways to celebrate design and clothes. It’s a start for positive system change. Our background is in running an awarded sustainable fashion brand, and we’ve become very familiar with design, pattern making, collection presentation, international fashion weeks – learning how clothing matter only when there is a personal connection to it.
In the No.1 issue of the TAUKO magazine, 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 textile share their experience and ponder the question “Could makers revolutionise the fashion industry?”. Within the pages we come to realize how important it is to find and appreciate the individual handprint of a maker and the 12 actual size sewing patterns and detailed guidelines inspire makers of all levels to start their new sewing project. With a turn towards makerism we hope to hear the maker’s voice as a revolution to build a healing relation with the planet.
