tuta.indd picks up this democratic approach by introducing a simple, gender neutral pattern to fit different working environments and being assembled at home like its famous role model.

Paul de Bruyn and Marlies Kolodziey set out to design a contemporary interpretation of the traditional work suit TuTa. Thayat, a young Italian designer, created the TuTa in 1919th Italy. The futuristic garment gained a broad popularity after the sewing pattern was published in the newspaper. As the pattern was accessible to everyone, people started sewing work outfits that would fit their professions at their homes.
