Það sem verður gert

Design and Have a Garment Made Just for You in Rome

Design your own skirt, shirt, culottes, dress, or bag and take home a one of a kind fashion piece! This experience supports the work of refugee tailors, and creates opportunities for them in their new community. Collaborate with a Tailor from Mali, Ivory Coast, or Burkina Faso to design your garment. We will meet at the Mercato Centrale in Termini Station and walk to our Atelier across the street. Learn about tailoring and natural dyes and fabrics from West Africa, as you enjoy coffee, tea and Roman pastries. Then co-design an original, made to measure piece- tailored just for you. Choose a style from our selection of models. Learn how measurements ensure a perfect fit and how a style is tailored to flatter you. We will then take a short walk through one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Rome to the Nuovo Esquilino Market, where we will meet international vendors selling one-of-a-kind fabrics. We will guide you in finding the right fabric, to suit your own unique tastes. Our team will finish your garment and deliver or ship to you. We tailor pieces for both adults and children and welcome young designers!

We are The Sewing Cooperative, an organization that creates economic opportunities for refugee tailors in Rome, through custom, made to measure, hand made products. This experience directly supports the tailors, and seeks to brings their skills to the broader community. My name is Lydia, and I am the founder and organizer. Originally from Ohio, I worked for ten years as a dressmaker for the NYC Ballet, Broadway, and NYU's Tisch School for the Arts. I recently relocated to Rome as a Fulbright Scholar to collaborate alongside and research the work integration of refugees in creative fields.

Staðsetning

Rome is a vibrant crossroads of culture and people. This is most evident in the area of Esquilino, which is home to a diverse population, artists, and the most international market in Rome, housing vendors and products from all over the world. We will spend our time in our studio, and then afterward walk through Piazza Vittorio and explore the market to find the perfect fabric to make your garment. We will also visit a historic Roman button shop.

This was an amazing experience for artisans and nonpartisans alike. What fun to pick your own garment design, material, and have it custom fitted! Lydia is doing an amazing job with her foresight and help for new to Italy artisans. Sign up; you will have fun, learn some, have a garment that fits like a glove, and won't be sorry that you did!

This was my fourth trip through Rome so I really wanted to do something beyond the usual tourist experience. Lydia and Issa definitely supplied a unique experience. I have a wonderful skirt, too, and the knowledge that I somehow helped a community. Thank you, Lydia and Issa!

This was a great experience. I recommend it as a splurge because its pricier than other experiences, but our two girls enjoyed it immensely. Lydia made it fun and interesting. She and the others at the cooperative really care about the work they do and it shows in the cute colorful garments they make. Thanks!

This was perhaps one of the most unique and fun things I've ever done on holiday. Not only was Lydia lovely and super accommodating, but her organisation The Sewing Cooperative deserves everyone's full support! Lydia had prepared the most decadent spread of fruit and baked goods, introduced me to everyone in the studio, and let me browse the rails of what was possible to design. I chose to go with a long skirt and being able to chose my own fabrics at the local market was amazing. We also got to pop by a local Italian mom n' pop shop for zippers and elastics. I got to pick up the final skirt the next day, and it was incredible! By far my favourite piece of clothing I own ever. 11/10 would recommend this and will totally come back if I'm in Rome again!

Lydia is doing great work with refugees in Rome's diverse Esqilino neighborhood. She is an expert tailor, very friendly and knowledgeable, and she and her apprentices have designed a really unique experience. Want to see more of the "real" Rome and meet some local residents? Then definitely sign up for this experience! Bonus, you'll walk away with a one-of-a-kind bespoke garment!

My teenage daughters very much enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to their custom made pants! The girls were also impressed with the work that Lydia is doing and learning about her group.
