Tauko Magazine, Issue No. 4
In Tauko, Issue No. 4, we will slow down and take a look at what grows right next to our feet. This issue is dedicated to the fungi world, understanding mycorrhiza and introducing the basics for creating natural dyes with mushrooms. The magazine features ten sewing patterns by independent designers inspired by the fungi and plant world. Making use of soft linen, wool, poplin and hand dyed fabrics the dresses, trousers and jackets come with many variations for differently skilled sewists.
All patterns come in 9 sizes from bust width 31” / 78cm to 57.5”/ 146cm.
TAUKO is a 128-page collectable that measures in at 275mm high x 215mm wide. There are four folded paper pattern sheets included with the magazine. It is published in Finland and is printed in Estonia.
