Irish mini-documentary Hands - episode 8 - Tailor
« on: February 24, 2020, 05:05:12 AM »
Have you seen "Hands, episode 8 - Tailor" ? It's part of Irish documentaries on craftsmanship in Ireland - this particular one from late 70's documents small town family tailoring firm.

It doesn't go to any details (sadly, as some other parts of the series are more "in depth"), although I think it's a charming short video.

I never before seen pressing on knee board elsewhere than in photos... But that could be just me.

Its clear tailoring cannot be conducted without a pipe.

Thank you Theoretically Grey, it is charming.

I posted it somewhere else on here about a year ago.

Yes it's good one that. Other good ones are the silversmith and the one where they make marquetry furniture. There's also one about a shoemaker. I think the complete series is on Daily Motion.
