Sewing is an essential skill for life that fewer people learn due to cuts to the arts sector in schools. These skills are also being lost in families when they were once passed down, technology is taking over. At Couchman Bespoke we believe in equality to learn skills that empower people for a better future. People on low income have fewer opportunities to better themselves, especially in London with a high cost of living. Being on a low to no income is not to be sneered at as everyone has their own story behind their circumstances. This also does not mean they do not wish to learn new skills, they just often are not inspired to do so. To be given an opportunity to gain new skills shows the importance of such skills in life, and sewing is a skill that can bring in a good income to those who practice well. To others it is more a hobby that brings joy to life.
