Sewing! Climate! Culture! Community! Finnish launch Tauko encompasses all that is sewing-shaped.
The latest issue delves into Blue: the colour, the feeling, and the material. Contributors ruminate on the emotional qualities of blue while guessing at its prominence despite being a rare natural colour.
A total of nine different designs with numerous variations are inspired by different expressions of blue from windy, Nordic beaches to rich blue wool. In addition to sewing patterns and instructions, the magazine features articles about indigo dyeing, traditional Japanese textiles, and interview with artist Naomi Ito. All patterns come in nine sizes from bust width 31″/78 cm to 57.5″/146 cm.
