Piece Work is a project which engages with a garment factory in Hamilton (Coppley Apparel). Currently employing 300 people, the company has manufactured finely tailored men’s suits since its inception in 1883. The image of the suit pattern, from Coppley’s archive, is scanned and organized in the way that the patterns are laid out to cut the fabric for a suit.
