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.
