Shop Owner: Gail, Hop & Svintha

On Urbankissed since: 2019

After researching, travelling and living in India for years, the three women - Gail from Australia, Hop from Switzerland and Svintha from The Netherlands - founded Common Texture which is a slow fashion boutique who works with artisans around the globe and celebrates their master skills. They produce unique handcrafted accessories from woven banana fiber bags, fine woven rattan items to upcycled yoga mat bags. Each piece in their collection is handcrafted and their production runs are small and ethically made.

BANANA FIBER WEAVING: Using this very ancient technique, a little weaving nest in South India produces their bags and purses made out of banana fibre. It takes three days of hand knitting to complete.

HAND BLOCK PRINTING: The master block printers work their craft on their 100% pure linen fabric, creating beautiful block robes and kimonos.

ZERO WASTE & UPCYCLING: Wherever possible they use premium quality upcycled fabrics and trimmings in an attempt to reduce waste. That’s how products like their "Yoga Mat Bags" are created.

PANDAN WEAVERS: A remote community from the West peninsular of Malaysia are making their fine woven rattan bracelets. The Temiar women, who live in the jungle, weave with rattan and palm fronds from the Pandanus plants.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

I bought the silver whale ring from Solitude the Label and I'm very happy with this piece. The piece is elegant and dainty while also feeling solid. Urbankissed sent me an email to let me know when it would be shipped. I've got to know many new sustainable brands through this webshop. The only downside is that the shipping fee still depends on individual brands but you'll find out about this before paying, so it's all transparent and you can make up your mind whether you want to order from this brand and pay the shipping fee or not.
Wonderful fair products with great customer service! Sophie is such a sweet lady, helping you in every way to get the pieces of your choice.
Lovely product and lovely packaging! Happy to support a slow fashion business, and getting such a special piece in the mail is wonderful:) the fabric of the bikini I bought is very soft. I haven’t gone swimming with it on yet, as I’m a bit concerned it’ll be see-through (the bikini is white) when wet. But I also wear the top as a bra so it’s multifunctional!
