The tailoring of winter overcoats is a prosperous craft in the Tunisian town of Testour. This paper investigates the social organization of production and the economic situation of the craft. It pays special attention to changes in workshop organization, credit, wages, and prices, and in marketing and its relationship to Tunis dealers. The paper provides some reflections on the articulation of domestic and capitalist modes of production and on the evolution of tailoring from a handicraft to a manufacture through a reformulation of the mode of cooperation.
