Welcome to the community

OUR 
COMMON
CODE

We are a destination for clothing cultures uncorrupted by profit and defined by purpose, meaning and values.

 

The communities here steward their collective resources in fair and collaborative ways, according to our Common Code. 

Our 5 Core Pillars

All communities included here follow our 5 core pillars.

01

WE BUILD COMMUNITY

Communities nurture their community and serve their community's needs.

02

WE NURTURE OUR CULTURAL IDENTITY

Communities nurture their creativity, culture, traditions and/or customs relating to dress, clothing and/or bodily adornment.

03

WE SHARE OUR COLLECTIVE WEALTH

Communities actively engage in the exchange and sharing of ideas, inspiration, knowledge, skills, creativity and/or physical collective wealth rather than keeping it as property.

04

WE RESPECT OTHER PEOPLES, THEIR CULTURES AND LIVELIHOODS

Communities respect and care for other peoples, the significance of their cultures and expressions, and their right to dignified livelihoods. 

05

WE CARE FOR PLANET

Communities nurture and/or protect our shared planet and the living world.

Our 5 Further Intentions

Communities also make active steps towards some of our 5 further intentions.

WE CELEBRATE SUFFICIENCY

Communities reject false scarcity and excess, and show an understanding that our collective wealth of knowledge, resources, and clothes is more than enough to meet everyone's needs.

+

WE ACT IN RECIPROCITY

Communities acknowledge gifts given freely and respond in turn with reciprocity.

+

WE SEEK INDEPENDENCE FROM MARKET AND STATE

Communities seek to have minimal reliance on the market and state. 

+

WE ARE NOT FOR PROFIT

Communities put the needs of communities and ecology before profit, ensuring any abundance is shared fairly.

WE RESPECT ALL SENTIENT BEINGS 

Communities treat their fellow animals with respect, and avoid exploiting, commodifying or harming any individual.
