Alterations and mending

TAUKO has been built around respect for craftsmanship and tailored services. We are proud to have our own studio workshop that is able to serve our customers for alterations and mending whenever needed for the TAUKO collection pieces. You can also ask for a completely tailor-made piece. 




We’re excited to share that we’re able to offer free alterations on normal priced, in-store and online purchases of TAUKO pieces within 30 days of purchase. If you ordered online, all you have to cover is the shipping to us — we’ll pay for the return shipping!

* The items must have been purchased either in our TAUKO Helsinki store or online at to be eligible for free alterations. All altered items are final sale.*

Put on your dress, trousers or a skirt and using a pin, indicate how much you'd like taken in for the perfect fit.

On the hem and sleeves

Shorter: fold + pin to the desired length (you can also tell us your inseam!)

Longer: the hem can be taken out to add between 2-3 cents to the length depending on size. Please attache a note to us with your product which tells us how much longer the hem should be (you can also tell us your preferred inseam length)

It is our aim to keep the loved TAUKO pieces in use as long as possible. You can either bring us your garment or mail it, and we will give you a valuation of the costs (if there are any). Many of the repairs are complementary as we love to ensure long lifecycles to each garmen

For alterations and mending send your to our studio store

TAUKOdesign Oy, Satamakatu 4, 00160 Helsinki, Finland

Please include the return address, phone number & email in your parcel.

Our aim is to have the alterations and mending work done within 5 working days. If you wish to have a made to measure piece, drop us a line, and we'll see how to fit your wishes to our calendar. Whenever you visit our TAUKO studio store, our lovely staff will help you with alterations.


Our production is made in small batches which allows us to make individual dreams come true. If you have a dream of a TAUKO collection piece in a new colour or for example a long hem, let us know.
