Neapolitan Bespoke Tailors

O'MAST from Kid Dandy on Vimeo.

Thank you to Sue from Perth, who shared this link over on our Tessuti Fabrics page on Facebook today.

I just had to share this with everyone, it's a wonderful look into Neapolitan tailoring traditions and the skill and passion of these talented men. I'd love to be their apprentice/trainee.

My favourite quote in this 'There is no craft that you can make without passion'



  1. How inspiring! Thanks so much for posting on this - that we should all be so creative and brave :-)

  2. I love this. We have a customer in Melbourne, an old-school Italian tailor, who reminds me of every single one of these men. I'll join you on that apprenticeship thanks, though I expect they'd get very impatient with me...

  3. Wow! just amazing and yes love the piece about having a passion! I soooooo need to be more patient with sewing and do far more hand sewing!!! In a way it is a shame we aren't all taught to sew like this from the very beginning........
