CHAT Sewing Team

Sign up to CHAT newsletter

The CHAT sewing team is currently composed of a retired paper pattern master and a sewing worker. They are committed to the development of textile creation and co-learning, and are a key element of CHAT’s community and co-learning programmes. For many years, they worked in textile factories and witnessed the rise and fall of the textile and clothing industry. The paper pattern master once expressed, ‘After the decline of the textile industry, we can hardly find a place to apply our expertise. Even though we have the experience and skills, large-scale clothing stores in the market have become mainstream, so fewer and fewer people make their own clothes anymore.’ In light of this, the CHAT Lab provides a co-learning platform for young designers and sewing team members to share their expertise and learn from one another. Sewing is more than just a job for these sewing workers, but a lifelong hobby which they have kept even after retirement. It is precisely because of their passion for clothes-making that they will pass on the craftsmanship through the co-learning activities.
