Artefacts in the Making

Bespoke Tailoring

Artefact London is proud of ethics and exceptionally high quality work our tailors deliver. All our garments are made in Porto, Portugal; finished here in London.
We would like to share the art of suit craftsmanship and to show you what happens behind the scenes between your in person Consultation and Fitting appointments.

These snapshots come straight from the tailoring workshop in sunny Porto, Portugal taken back in September 2016. Business as usual for our tailors, nothing staged for a photoshoot.

Artefact London is a seamless blend of sartorial mastership and heritage along with high tech computing and laser cutting that allows to deliver garments of unrivalled quality fast.

It starts in our cosy tailoring studio in the heart of Mayfair, where we discuss your requirements, get you measured and design the garment.

Your individual pattern is created using CAD (Computer Aided Design) according to the measurements taken during the appointment. It is cut with precision by laser straight onto the cloth alleviating costly and time consuming pattern drafting on paper and avoiding errors often made when the cloth is cut by hand.

Some processes of making a suit are hand made foregoing technological advances on purpose - it allows for attention to detail, endless flexibility and customisation of the garment to the unique specifications set out by its future owner.

Combination of hand and machine work is used to create a malleable canvas construction for jackets that will mould around your body. Unlike overwhelming majority of ready made garments our lapels are fully canvassed with a choice of half and full canvas construction along the fore part of the jacket that gives your bespoke jacket a crisp cut.

Contrasting or matching sleeve lining is hand stitched inside the jacket sleeves.

Traditional melton is hand sewn to the back of the collar. Our melton is always cut on the bias to allow it to follow the shape of your neck naturally without stretching out around it.

Buttons and buttonholes hand sewn to avoid loose threads and frilling that you constantly see in retail garments.

A personal monogram is added on the inside of the jacket with the help of a special embroidery machinery.

Every stitch along the seams is hand pressed throughout the making process and fused to give the suits that sharp polished look and a long life.

At the end of the process your Artefact suit is thoroughly pressed and every stitch, inch by inch is inspected for perfection, no compromises ever made.
