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.
