Schmata is a golem who works for a tailor in Peach Pie Street. Moist von Lipwig's probation officer Mr Pump arranges for him to make Moist a distinctive suit in golden cloth.

In Roundworld Yiddish and general British slang derived therefrom, the word schmatter denotes cloth, tailoring fabric, and clothing derived therefrom. Jewish people have a long association with tailoring in Britain.
