28 February - World Tailors Day
World Tailors' Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the birth of William Elias Howe, American citizen and inventor of the sewing machine.
The art of tailoring began as early as the 12th century, as people began to look at clothing as a way to accentuate the figure, instead of as a means of concealing it. The word “tailor”, which first appeared in the Oxford Dictionary in 1297, comes from a French word—tailler—meaning “to cut.” The Latin word for tailor was sartor, meaning someone who patches or mends garments; the English word “sartorial”, for something related to tailored garments, is derived from this word.
The sewing machine is one of the greatest technological inventions of all time. It was among the first home appliances in the American Industrial Revolution. It influenced the role and status of women, revolutionized the garment trade, and modernized other businesses such as shoemaking and upholstery.
