TAUKO Magazine Issue No. 9
Offical release date for Issue #9 is Friday 20th October, if you order a copy for local pickup, please note it will not be available to pickup until this date.
TAUKO Magazine No. 9 is dedicated to the colour blue! The colour of the sky, seas and lakes has inspired a series of nine different sewing patterns by international designers. Serenity and tranquillity are very much in evidence in these designs, which include dresses, casual trousers, blouses and trench coats against the cold winter blasts. The size- and gender-inclusive designs also make great handmade gifts for loved ones! Artists and researchers talk about the importance of blue in the world of textiles in a variety of articles, providing plenty to read into the dark evenings. The issue includes paper patterns and step-by step instructions for all the designs featured, which come in 9 sizes from 31″/78 cm bust to 57.5″/146 cm.

TAUKO Magazine continues our story of finding new, regenerative, and empowering ways to celebrate design and clothes. It’s a start for positive system change. Our background is in running an awarded sustainable fashion brand, and we’ve become very familiar with design, pattern making, collection presentation, international fashion weeks – learning how clothing matter only when there is a personal connection to it.
TAUKO stands for a break or a pause in Finnish. It describes a strong, silent, and still movement that is almost impossible to notice.
