Sustainable

The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, and it’s time we rethink the materials, processes, and packaging used to create our beloved purchases. This is why we’ve done the upfront legwork and vetted our brands to ensure that our planet’s health is top of mind for them as well.

Woman-Owned

Women lift up half of the sky - by investing in women, you’re assisting in the process of creating more wealth for families and communities. The successes of women shape the way young girls see themselves as they develop into leaders, and it's essential for the world to provide leaders that mirror half of the population. 

Toxic Free

The secret behind the beauty, personal-care, and fashion industry is that they’re virtually unregulated, and therefore, allowed to use untested chemicals in their products. Exposure to these ingredients can be harmful overtime, and that’s why we’ve vetted each and every single one of these brands to ensure that they’re up to standards for those looking for a cleaner beauty routine or may be more sensitive to harsh ingredients.

Ethical

Here at ourCommonplace, all brands have our ethical stamp of approval, which encompasses decent working conditions, treatment of workers, and fair-wages. Through providing a platform for purchasing ethical goods and ensuring all brands uphold ethical standards, we hope to take us towards a more equitable and just world.

BIPOC-Owned

We believe in uplifting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities by empowering their businesses. By choosing to allocate your purchasing power to BIPOC-owned businesses, you're not only strengthening local BIPOC communities — you're also contributing to shrinking the racial wealth gap, fostering job creation, and propelling diverse representation across consumer industries.

Cruelty Free

Animal tests are often painful and cause the suffering and deaths of millions of animals every year. Having this stamp of approval means that no animals were tested on, harmed or killed in the process of making the product. When you opt in for cruelty-free brands, you’re opting out of animal testing, and investing in clean products that are made for the benefit of your body, animals, and the environment.

C O N C E P T 

The LUNA dress takes a thematic approach to the cyclical nature of our life and surroundings as we understand it — be it lunar, water, carbon, spiritual, mental, physical and so on— and weaves it into a world in which we dress in accordance to our current state.

NEW MOON refers to the Luna in a deep charcoal-black. The New Moon represents a new beginning and is worn when thoughts pertaining to invigoration arrive: “I feel like this is just the beginning,” “I am about to enter a new chapter in my life,” “I will be establishing a new routine or mentality.”

After a thorough investigation of what using recycled material means in all aspects, Taiyo is so very proud to introduce a recycled cotton knit. The mill we chose, Toki Sen, functions on a policy of “symbiosis with nature,” meaning they manufacture with ecological considerations and promotion of oil removal. The mill is a member of BCP (Better Cotton Platform). 

They use TSURI knitting machines that move in a slow ticking motion to produce old fashioned, high quality stitches, literally weaving air into the fabric which gives you an incredibly soft and beautiful texture that is impossible to reproduce on modern day machines. This traditional method has been slowly developed over 100+ years with thought and intention and with great attention to detail.

Toki Sen uses “fallen cotton” which means they use old clothing such as secondhand  clothing or cutting wastage and return it to a raw cotton form. To do so, they “fluff” the material, meaning a machine breaks the weave of the previously made clothing. The making process of the newly recycled fabric has a very low carbon footprint as the result is a combination of experienced artisan’ skill and the traditional Japanese techniques use and refer to as “slow vintage.”

Additionally, a portion of our fabric purchase for the Luna Dress went to Burkina Faso, which contributes to the healthy development of the country through the ethical purchase of cotton grown in Burkina Faso in West Africa. A portion also goes to support medical care and education through the Japan Burkina Faso Friendship Association.

Toki Sen is admirably continuing their journey to live in symbiosis with nature. They are currently working to install solar for in-house power generation.
