The Artisan

Alessandro, artisan tailor

It is an almost innate passion that of tailoring for Alessandro. Already at a very young age he learnt to sew from his tailor mother. As a boy, he started making clothes for himself and his friends, instead of buying them in fast fashion retail chains. After other jobs, he decided to open his own tailoring workshop in 2021.

Detailed Programme

Alessandro will welcome you in his charming workshop in the historic centre of Putignano. It is in this place that he started his business, turning a passion into his profession. 

At the beginning of the experience, Alessandro will introduce you to his concept of tailoring: a made-to-measure garment does not follow the latest fashion trends but respects and enhances the style of who wears it, and it is designed to last over time in contrast to the logic of modern fast fashion.

Then, Alessandro will teach you how to recognise the differences between various types of fabric. He will also show you the different steps to make a garment entirely handmade according to the authentic tradition.

During the practical part of the experience, you will learn how to sew by hand with needle, thread and thimble. You will then use the skills acquired to create and decorate a fabric bookmark that you will take home as a memory of the experience.

The experience will end with a short convivial moment, during which Alessandro will offer you a coffee or a cool drink. This will be the opportunity to learn more about Alessandro’s story and the motivations that led him to become a tailor.

Un’altra grande scoperta con Loliv! Alessandro ci ha accolto nella sua bottega molto originale ed elegante e ci ha fatto scoprire il suo mondo con questo mini corso di sartoria artigianale. Per nulla conoscitori di questo settore, ci siamo andati per curiosità. Ebbene, Alessandro è un artista che vive la sua arte con enorme passione e sa come condividerla con voi. Grazie per la scoperta!
