knowing what you wear matters

Maker Skirt


Maker Skirt - by Makers for Makers.


The Maker Skirt was created when Tove Ohlander and Annika Axelson joined forces to bring By Dem Sweden to a larger audience.  Tove had years of design and manufacturing experience, mostly from the glass blowing industry, and saw an opportunity to create a garment missing from the Women's Maker scene.  Annika had a solid sustainable production chain with her company By Dem Sweden, spanning from the organic cottonseed plantation to ready rolls of fabrics at her partner factories in India. 

The Maker Skirt is a wrap-around skirt with 2 big pockets in the front, one mobile phone pocket on the left side, and a key chain or tool loop on the right side.  The skirt overlaps in the back, as opposed to the traditional wrap-around skirt that overlaps in the front.  It is a size-flexible garment that you adjust when you tie your skirt in front/side/back.  There is a short version that you can wear over jeans for projects and an "apron-feel", or just as a skirt on it's own.  There is a long version for Women that prefer added length for a more elegant look, even this one works with jeans or leggings underneath if that's your choice.

Dress it up, and dress it down.  Knowing what you wear matters.


"Thank you Tove for creating a classic! The T by Dem Maker Skirt in its simplicity, inspired by workwear and free from embellishment is a work of art. There is something reassuringly constant and no nonsense about the Maker skirt that provides true functionality and crazy hip cool. As reliable as your best friend, you’ll want to get to know the Maker skirt in every color for every season."  Clare Wool Line Producer
