The Modern Maker


The Modern Maker creates clothing from the past, present and sometimes the future. Our focus is creating high-quality historical clothing based on patterns from surviving tailors’ manuals of the 16th and 17th centuries.

The Modern Maker is constantly looking for truth in our work. We are always striving to see the obscure signature of a hidden technique from the hands of our forebears. By connecting with our hands, our hearts and our professions, we connect with the people of the past. We aim to keep the craft of hand sewn clothing alive for as long as we can. With every stitch, we honor the past and create our own future.
