The hand-tailoring bench is used by colonists assigned to tailoring to produce clothing. For higher production speed, see its powered counterpart, the electric tailoring bench.

Like other production stations, a bill must be created to specify what items are to be produced and what materials may be used. Materials that may be used are leather, cloth, devilstrand, and hyperweave. Each clothing item produced has a certain quality depending on the crafting skill of the colonist (see quality for a detailed chart). An item's market value, deterioration rate, defense rating and temperature resistance are all determined by the material substance and crafting quality.

Grown cloth is the baseline material used for tailoring, being easy to grow and providing mundane stats across the board. Devilstrand by comparison provides much better protection, but is extremely difficult and slow to grow and not useful for equipping a starting colony. Leather based apparel typically has improved defense ratings while domesticated animal wool has excellent temperature tolerance for extreme climates.

If a tailoring job is interrupted for any reason the crafter will drop the piece, usually on the workbench, and it will be in an unfinished state until the crafter finishes it. A crafter cannot work on another crafter's piece. The piece will indicate the name of the crafter and how much work is remaining. The stockpile filter includes an entry for unfinished apparel which allows the player to control where they are stored.

An effective tool for ensuring that only quality garments from a tailoring bench are retained is to set your colonists to only wear clothes above a certain quality level using the 'Assign' tab. This way, you can ensure they only wear the best clothes, and you can leave the inferior quality clothes to sell.

Up to two nearby tool cabinets can be connected to a hand-tailoring bench to increase work speed.
