For many, “Stefan Tailor Shop” is the one found on George Vraca Street. Mr. Stefan has worked in this location for many years in a row, until the summer of 2019, when he decided to move his tailor shop to Voluntari Neighbourhood, on the groundfloor of his house. Except for the address, his services are the same. Only the newly added customers changed. The know-how of the master kept all its qualities intact.
Mr Neagu has been repairing shoes and has worked with leather since highschool. The workshop has all it takes to widen shoes, to chance the soles, to redo stitches or just to clean thoroughly a fancy leather. His passion for the craft can easily be seen in each order and on the Facebook page of the workshop one can find some of this order presented in detail. He is looking for an apprentice, but until now he hasn’t found the right person.
The workshop of tailor Maria is located on 20 Popa Soare Street, is not big, instead it is very welcoming. Mrs. Maria is specialised in making underwear, simple and special corsets, bride veils, costumes for dancers. In the past, at “Venus Fashion House” on Calea Victoriei, she was the one that spent endless hours patiently sewing sequins and beads on the gowns that were created there. In her current workshop, different sorts of repairs are possible, for both women and men’s garments.
The tailor shop where Mrs Elena works is the only one left on Stirbei Voda St. Wearing a beautiful smile and all the time ready for starting work, Mrs Elena is that type of a tailor that gets its energy from the moment when the client put his hands on the piece of clothing and is happy with it. “For a tailor, there is no greater satisfaction than that.”
Calm, having each day something nice to say and always wearing a shirt at the shop, Mr Marin is for many a surprise because just the pieces of threads forgotten on his jumper say that he is a tailor. He is one of those tailors that see their kraft as a form of art and that treat with respect each step of the making. The shop is located at the ground floor of an apartament building right beghind the Court House, away from the noise of the big bulevard.
Mr. Stan is a talkative type of person, and he strongly believes that if one does a craft like his – shoe maker – is impossible to be otherwise. A great share of such kind of craft is working with people, side which the shoemaker has always enjoyed. In a workshop almost the size of a shower cabin, Mr Stan vividly repairs shoes, changes heel lifts or just cleans particular leathers.
The whetting workshop of Mr Alexandru seems like coming from the past, from the period between the world wars. Even for many passer-bys seems a deserted place. But is far from reality. Mr Alexandru can strongly accomodate orders in this tiny space, that cannot fit more than two people at once, most of the space being used by all the tools that you need in this craft of whetting.
A tailoring workshop that doesn’t follow a typical pattern. Alongside small touch-ups done by diligent tailorwomen, the main specialization of this workshop are work uniforms. White, orange, red of blue, they can be combined, matched and adjusted on the spot.
