About us

Located in Downtown Halifax and Bedford, Midyat Tailor is a local owned business.

Midyat Tailor was established in 1984 by two brothers of professional tailors from Turkey. Midyat is the name of the town where they came from. The tailor shop has been operated by other owners before our purchase in 2019, after 3 months we landed here in Halifax. We keep the name to show our respect to the first owners for their professionalism and hardworking.

My name is Helen. I am a second generation tailor from Vietnam and currently owner of Midyat Tailor. I love to work on fabrics and clothes. I am also passionate about helping people be more comfortable and confident with their appearance, and inspiring my clients to make environmentally conscious fashion choices. All of that led me to the journey of an entrepreneur and being the owner of the 2 tailor shops in Halifax and Bedford. We are doing the tailoring, alteration, dry cleaning and formal dresses. We are honour to be the First Prize Winner at the Competition for Women Entrepreneurs in March 2020, organized by Diversity Institute, Ryerson University.

I appreciate all the great people I have been working with, my supportive and professional tailors and landlords, amazing customers and business partners.

To us, every stitch matters. We commit to pay our attention to every stitch and use the best quality materials, threads, needles and machines to take care of your clothes. I look forward to providing high quality tailoring services to our regular and new clients throughout the HRM as well as the other cities and provinces! ~ Helen
