Now it’s time to show you a bit of African Lisbon Tailor’s reality.Where they work? Which working condition they have?

Tailors are small entrepreneurs, they buid small business . When they become masters , they can teach other tailor’s apprentice .These micro-businesses allow for a dynamic mode of clothing research and a review of traditional languages.  Tailor’s know-how means part of cultural heritage. Endowed with a original identity , each tailor has its exclusive models and a certain way to do it.I went to discover them ateliers in Lisbon. my beloved African tailors.  Here is a short photographic reportage… at hidden places from our Lisbon.
