TACH: Crafting Extraordinary Knitwear
TACH was established in 2016 by the Uruguayan sister trio, Sabrina, Anette and Patricia Tachdijan, hence the name TACH. Despite the brand being Uruguayan, the sisters' surname is Armenian, in which their great-grandparents immigrated to Uruguay in the early 20s and the sisters' parents met in Uruguay. The family owned a haberdashery store where the sisters enjoyed helping with the gift-wrapping. Their father designed children's clothing in a variety of Uruguayan workshops and their grandfather owned a shoe shop, so the whole family were passionate craftspeople.
The sisters have fond memories of their childhood where they used to dress-up in matching clothing, but in different colours. Therefore, TACH represents the dreamlike visions of their childhood through its textures and colours that invite you to play.
According to the sisters, Uruguay is a "toy country" and it's sense of familiarity is charming. Their textile industry is fighting for survival despite having fields, sheep and beautiful wool. Knitting and embroidery are trades that the three sisters chose to reinforce, given that the fashion industry is insatiable with the "buy and throwaway" dynamic; TACH locally produces clothing and supports the national industry. The sister trio draws inspiration from vintage crafted clothing to create a brand that is fresh, sustainable, playful, detailed and bold.
All garments are made in small batches with inclusive sizing ranges and are ethically produced and made to last a life-time. Importantly all workers are paid fairly and there is no animal cruelty during the production of the garments.
