Tailor-M (www.tailor-m.com) is a for-profit social enterprise founded with a vision to improving the living standards of tailors in Hong Kong. Tailor-M aims to revitalize the bespoke tailoring sector through connecting the often elderly tailors to customers in Hong Kong and overseas.
In Hong Kong, tailoring is widely recognized as a “sunset industry” as the number of tailors has shrunk by 70% in the past 15 years. With most (95%) of the tailors over 50 years old, this group of skilled craftsmen is in urgent need of finding younger successors.
“People wear suits every day, why would tailoring be a sunset industry? There is obviously a huge demand.” Co-founder and CEO of Tailor-M, Jacky Chan, questions the general perspective.
Tailors in Hong Kong are struggling to make a living and are working in poor conditions because of the high rents they have to pay for their street-level shops and their inability to promote their businesses using modern technology. With Tailor-M, more customers are brought to the bespoke tailors and the customer’s experience is improved.
