In this modern era, it is very rare for humans to sew their own clothes. Humans took the initiative to create a shop or a kind of convection home industry that produces any type of clothing. The after-production of any sewing activities always left with several fabrics. This leftover is has potential to create dispute between involved parties. This study aims to scrutinize the ownership right of leftover stitches based on Islamic law teachings. This study uses analytic approach based on data collected through interviews from eight source person, both the customers and the tailors. This study concluded two things. First, the contract between customers and tailors are made through ijarah contract where the customer asked the tailor to make specific clothes according to pre-agreed fee. Second, the right of leftover fabrics is regulated under local ‘urf and can be devided into two categories: whether the tailor is a convection or individual. In the initial, the right of leftover fabric belongs to customer, while the latter belongs to the tailor. This research is beneficial for all Moslem since it solves the possible dispute that might arise from the ambiguity of leftover fabric after the production process ended.
