About us

Paul started his tailoring business in Chicago, USA 34 years ago. He moved the operations to Rättvik in 1999 where we now have a giftshop and workroom at Gärdebygatan 14. Paul provides high quality tailoring services and values the Swedish folkcostume traditions. He uses tried and true methods and techniques when producing new copies of old garments.

Paul has many years experience in alterations in the United States retail garment industry.

Paul was awarded the Handcrafter of the year award by Dalarnas Spelmansförbund in 2006.

We welcome customers the world over. As you would expect, to sew custom-made garments requires individual meetings. For certain orders, therefore, a visit or more is required to our tailorshop in Rättvik. Let us know how we can be of assistance with your trip. We can be of assistance in planning you trip, and time your fittings around activities that interest you. If you are one of those that is interested in sewing your folkdräkt yourself, you can take a course with us and thereby get the support and instruction you need to sew the garment properly, as well as access to quality machines and workspace. An added dimension is the contact with others working on their projects, sharing the course time together.  All are welcome!

Please stop in!
